Ravello vs. Palisade: Which to choose?

While both boots are incredible choices no matter your discipline, here are a few differences to consider. 

The Ariat Ravello Field Tall Riding Boots are perfect for riders who prefer a timeless, classic equestrian style. True to size with a rounder toe, these boots offer a comfortable and flattering fit for various foot shapes. What many riders love about the Ravello boot is its exceptional comfort right out of the box and little to no breaking in period.

While the zip guards make these boots more durable and comfortable, the snap closures are slightly more noticeable than the Palisade boots, which some equestrians don’t enjoy. Still, the Ravello Field Tall Riding Boots stand out as the perfect option for dressage and schooling, thanks to their elegant design.

The Ariat Women’s Palisade Show Tall Riding Boots are a standout choice for riders seeking contemporary style. With its slim fit and square toe, these boots offer a streamlined and flattering silhouette that gives the illusion of a long leg. The Palisade boot also has a quick break-in period, with riders saying these boots feel broken in after just one or two rides. Riders love the Palisade boots because they’re fancy enough for dressage but comfortable for cross country.

Here’s a quick-reference breakdown of how these boots compare to one another.
