“Riding High”

published 29/07/2011

ProSoft leather, padded ankles, lovely looking boot

ConsZip will probably go after time

When competing horses in showjumping, dressage or eventing, it is a requirement that you wear long leather boots. This is partly due to tradition and partly for safety reasons as long leather boots offer more protection and stability. However, many riders (including myself) do their day to day...

“Substance with style”

published 17/05/2007

ProQuality, value for money

ConsBit clunky

I think that these are really good boots. If you your day consists of riding and yard work, it is a real pain to keep having to change your footwear, but you do not want to spoil good leather boots. Mountain Horse Sportive High Riders are a really good compromise. They are comfortable to ride in...

ProPainless.

ConsExcept for the initial expense.

Black rubber or black leather? Could be a difficult choice. Well, this review doesn`t do black rubber, just black leather. Just don`t get too excited, it`s not going to be a kinky review, just highly predictable for me, riding boots! I have already written a review on a rubber pair of riding...

“Bootyliscious!”

published 25/07/2005

ProSmart Leather competition boot

ConsThey break in easily!

As a keen horsewoman, last season required some new equine equipment, including new boots for me! The Mountain Horse Sportive High Rider looked perfect, they were made of supple leather, with a panel of stretch re-inforces material to expand and hug the calf. I used to have problems in finding...

ProComfortable & Durable

ConsNone

I have been wearing Mountain Horse boots for years now including the ever popular 'Cheetah' boot. I have always ridden in a pair of long leather boots and normally the zips have either gone on them or the stitching which is quite frankly damn annoying! When I bought another horse about 2 years...

Good

published 25/07/2008

I think the boots are great from a comfort , warmth, breathability and ease of access position. The one problem I have come across having owned a pair for four years is that the zips broke after two years and after replacement by a local saddler broke again this year. At £50 - £70 per replacement they are becoming expensive to run. I wear them for approx 9 months of the year in the region of 5 days per week for approx 1-2 hours each time which I do not think is excessive.

“The longer lasting boot”

ProComfortable, long lasting, good price and fab to w...

ConsNone that I can think of

I purchased my boots back in 2001 and have never looked back. They are comfortable, most important when you spend several hours a day in the saddle. They have lasted so far without looking like I have had them for 4 years. The price is great for the durability and practicality elements and they...
