These boots were made for riding

At In The Saddle, we really love our Ariat boots. We’ve taken them everywhere with us, from Ecuador to the Azores, Kenya to Mongolia!

The endurance-type boots (such as Terrain and Telluride) are a perfect hybrid of a hiking and riding boot.

These boots are comfortable for long days in the saddle, but tough enough to withstand everything an adventure might throw at them – from wading through the floodwaters of the Okavango Delta, to the humidity of the Pantanal or the ferocious winds of the Cotopaxi National Park.

Country boots are also a great option and last really well. Sarah from In The Saddle has taken her Ariat Grasmere boots all over the world; Kenya, Botswana, France, Spain and South Africa.

For an instructional holiday you might be more comfortable in a tall boot like the Volant, or perhaps a paddock boot/gaiter combination.

Then of course, for a ranch holiday you might want to look and feel the part in a Western boot.

We love our Ariat boots and take them all over the world with us. But we’d love to hear from you too. Is there anything you take on riding holidays with you that you just can’t do without?

Do feel free to like, share or comment.
