Hi can anyone recommend some new riding boots! I am just recently got into riding and got a pair of cheap Harry Hall rubber boots but they are a bit big and not the most comfortable!
I am want something thats gonna be ok for riding lessons and happy hacking and generally working around the yard as can never be bothered to change boots, I am not into shows or competitions yet so thats not an issue.
Any advice??? :D

I LOVE my ariat paddock boots for riding/working in the barn. They are a little on the expensive side but they are very comfortable and are very well made.
I've also heard good things about the ariat terrians, and I think those are a little cheaper. Good luck finding some boots!

I recommend Dublin Daily jodhpur boots - they are extremely comfy and made of durable materials. :)
Half chaps also vary widely in price; I ride in shires amara chaps, which are suede looking - I think theyre a nice design and not costly at all! BUT they aren't really a longterm fix - yes, they have survived many washes after being drowned in mud down the yard and are still going strong but don't look like suede anymore and have faded ever so slightly, the elastic across the bottom has also slackened in areas. Therefore, I have no recommendations for half chaps, sorry! :p
Edited to add: I tried some ariat jodhpur boots int he tack shop and they were an amazing fit! My foot felt secure and they were like a tailored fit to be honest! But thats just me I suppose. They have a big reputation though. I think I would've bought them if I'd got enough dosh on me and they stocked black! Damn!

Depending on the mud situation - I'd go for Toggi Calgary long boots, they are nice to ride in and fairly sturdy for doing chores. Only thing is with them being leather you have to be careful of getting them too clarted in mud - specially the zips.
