Ariat paddock boots

Paddock boots strike the perfect balance between comfort, durability, and style. Also called ankle riding boots, this equestrian footwear extends just a few inches above the ankle. Shorter and less bulky than tall English riding boots, paddock boots are well-suited for all-day wear, an ideal choice for casual riding or working around the stables. In this post, we highlight six of Ariat’s best paddock boots, focusing on their women’s paddock boots. We share what makes each pair stand out and explain why Ariat riding boots are so popular with equestrians.
