Paddock Boots
English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Equicomfort
Model: Paddock Boots
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I won a pair of half chaps from Horse Tack Review, but didn't have any paddock boots to go with them. Voila - a great reason to go into a tack store! I can't remember the exact price, but I think these paddocks were originally around $90 Cdn. I got them from Picov's in Ajax, Ontario, Canada. I was also able to trade in a pair of older synthetic tall boots against the price of the paddocks so I got a better deal. I think they took $30.00 off the original price of the paddock boots... (I must've paid around $60.00 for them).

Likes: These are excellent paddock boots. I tried on a pair of synthetic paddocks at the store, but they weren't anywhere near as comfortable. They're nice enough to show in (which I've done), but durable enough for hacking and training. They broke in beautifully and were never uncomfortable. After taking my horse for a swim in a local lake (I wore water shoes), I came out and dried off, then put my paddock boots on. My breeches were still wet from the swim so water dripped down into the paddock boots. By the time I rode home, the boots were soaked through. The leather wasn't ruined at all and is still going strong. I just let them dry out naturally and then gave them a good conditioning.

Dislikes: The black dye on the toes have worn off a little leaving a greyish area. The glaze over the dye seems to be intact though. When I try to polish the greyish areas with black shoe polish, no matter what method I use, it doesn't seem to get absorbed properly and within a ride or two, the greyish area comes back again. I'm not sure why.. I think it's a little weird, but it's not a huge deal. I might have to strip the glaze from the toes and try dying them again (though I'll likely talk with a leather worker before attempting this).

Quality: The Equicomfort paddock boots are made from quality leather with a lightly padded cuff around the ankle, spur rests and a punched toe cap.

Summary: A great set of paddock boots for a decent price (especially with the trade-in I did)! I'd get them again when these ones wear out..
