Mountain Horse Venice Ladies Field Boot
Giving up on Mountain Horse
I got these boots about two years ago--and gave up on wearing them within three months-- they were awful. The leather was of decent quality, but they broke in REALLY oddly. The zipper dug into my ankle and the top of the foot was very strange. I tried oiling them and couldn't make them tolerable. I gave them to a friend to borrow and she thought the same thing. I used to love MH but this is the third model of boot that I've been disappointed in.

My daughter is short and needed more room in the calf. The height and calf on these boots fit perfectly. Couldnt believe I finally found a brand that carried her size. They look great on too! Would definitely recommend and would buy again. Thanks

So worth it!!!
I bought these boots almost 3 years ago and I have abused them almost daily ever since. They fit perfectly right out of the box and only took about two days to break in. They really make a difference in my leg when I ride, soo much better than half chaps, and now I never school without them!!
After 3 years they are just now getting to the point where they don't quite clean up for schooling shows anymore, but are still great for everyday riding. I will definately be getting another pair, you just can't beat them for the price!!!!

Great Schooling Boots!
I bought these for low level shows and schooling. At first it took a very long time to break these in and I definitely went through some blisters on the ankles however by conditioning the inside and outside and wearing them with thick socks they're great now! I also replaced the elastic laces with traditional laces which creates a much more custom fit in the ankle! It made the largest difference in fit because they were too big in the ankle before. I like the elastic back because I can wear these with breeches, jeans, etc. They're solid in terms of quality. I think they're best for schooling and low level showing! I love them because they keep my leg in place versus wearing paddock boots + half chaps. They also look great with the spanish topline.

I seriously tried to kill these! it didnt work!
i was 13 when i got these. my mom was crazy about keeping them nice, so the first time i wore them was going into a "AA" hunter show. after that i wore them everyday, 12 hours a day, and rode about 8-12 horses a day, and went into a paddock after it rained(1.5 feet of mudd!!!!) i wore them all summer and still wore them to medal finals that year. the only things i wasnt completely happy with was that the color got a little dull at the end and that my first time wearing them the zipper rubbed on my heel. and they wernt as gathered around the ankle as i would have liked ( but im being very hard on critique) but i have 3 riding friends that have these and they love them.

I can't say enough good things about Mountain Horse tall boots! Soooo comfortable, I never want to take them off! I wear these every day for 12 hours a day and my feet and knee never ache. They are just as supportive in the saddle. The leather is nice quality and they shine up really nice no matter how dirty i get them! Had my first pair for 3 years and I was REALLY hard on them, loved them so much I went and got a second pair to replace them with even after trying on other boots.
