The nature of Western riding is wild and free – so you need the right Western riding boots!
Western riding is modelled on how Cowboys work and has its origins in America. Back then, a cowboy had to spend hours in the saddle every day. They rode with one hand because they were holding their lasso in the other hand. So what they really needed was a reliable horse. On top of that, they needed convenient and especially practical equipment - for example, a comfortable saddle and good footwear.
Western riding is an expression of freedom. Western riding boots are similar to Western riding - these are essentially tougher and wilder than their delicate sisters, dressage riding boots. As for the look, they are much more colourful and feature more trims than the classic riding boots in brown and black.
The individual boot models are as different as the individual disciplines in Western riding. Western riding boots for men and ladies can often be recognised by their beautiful decorative stitching and colourful leathers - some models are simply colourful and feature different ornaments, other models show the origin of Western riding boots, their homeland - the United States, with stars and stripes or Texan flag. In our shop you will find a wide selection of Western riding boots for men and for ladies.
