Most people can admire the stylish look of a well-dressed English equestrian sporting traditional tall riding boots. They look amazing, especially at a high level Grand Prix or Olympic equestrian competition. Perhaps you've wondered why most English riders wear these lovely tall boots. Are they a prerequisite for riding or are they simply a fashion statement?
Truth be told, tall riding boots may look fabulous, but they are not simply an element of style. It's more about function than looks. Classic riding boots traditionally come up to the knee for a reason. The tall boots are designed to prevent the leathers of the tack from digging into or pinching the leg of the rider. For those that participate in field hunting, the tall field boot is also protective against brush and obstacles like fences. A heel is also a must because it prevents the foot of the rider from slipping out of the stirrup. Though some of today's English riding boots feature a somewhat smaller heel, the heel is a vital component of any riding boot.
