If you ever get the chance, you'll love it. Keep in mind, your legs might be sore the next day, if you're new to riding horses.

Hey guys, I know this probably isn't the BEST place to post this question but since we are talking about horses... I am looking into getting a pair of tall boots, as of now I wear chaps with short boots. Does anyone know of a good brand of boots that aren't like a million bucks? I had in mind a pair of Dublin universal boots and they seem good. Thanks so much!

Talk to the salesman and your local store, they'll be willing to help you! Plus, see if you can find a used pair. Alot of people buy custom sizes but find they don't fit, so people like me (with insanely skinny calves) can buy them for like half price at the consignment shop because nobody else fits them. I found that Dover was willing to direct me to to local consignment shop quite willingly.

I always use 20 eyelet Doc Martens. Takes a couple of weeks to break them in, but they are excellent riding boots. Clean them and polish them after riding, and all the extra care will make them butter soft for everyday wear, as well. You can replace the laces with colored parachute cord if you want to get stylish.

They seem expensive at around $170, but they last for years as long as you care for them. You might have to replace the zipper after the first year, which is cheap. Considering a nice pair of sneakers is $70 and lasts 3 or 4 months, it's a great deal in the long run.

Friend of mine got a retired thoroughbred. Never seen them up close but they are truly the greyhounds of horse breeds.

Mini horses are nice too, they make up for their size with their personalities.

I like a nice tall pony, personally - as close to 14 hands as it can get and not be a horse. Ponies are frequently spoiled because so many of the end up being trained by a child, but it's nice to be able to get back on one out on the trail. I'm short, so a horse is a challenge.

I have a pair of Ariats, they're one of the older model of the Ariat Challenge I believe. They're a lot cheaper than the Parlantis and DeNiro. There's also Treadstones, I know a few people with them and they're in a lower price range than most of the Ariats nowadays. I believe Mountain Horse makes tallboots as well but I don't know anyone who has had any, so I can't offer much feedback on those, although I imagine they're in a more reasonable price range.

If the username didn't give me away, I ride as well. I have a big canadian warmblood that I do the jumpers/equitation and dabble in the hunters as well. He's the love of my life :)
