As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Ultimate performance technology meets innovative design in this brand new series of English riding footwear using premium leathers, advanced materials and construction. Not only do they have a sleek looking exterior, but the Ariat Volant Tall Boot Front Zip also feature Ariat's Cobalt Quantum technology plus stretch mesh and oiled leathers, plus a full length zipper. All designed to create a great looking, fitting and feeling boot that will ensure peak performance for all equestrian athletes.

    Ariat® Volant Tall Boot Front Zip is rated 4.087 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable boots! I ordered these as my second pair of Ariat Volant boots and unfortunately I had to send them back due to the fact that the ankle was not as slim as I needed. However, first pair was great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots! I bought my first pair about a year and a half ago as a practice boot and I am very satisfied. The breaking in process (which is about 2-4 weeks) is extremely painful unfortunately but in the end it is totally worth it. After that point, i have never worn a boot that is so comfortable. It's basically like wearing tennis shoes! I ride 6 days a week and about 4+ horses daily with a lot of walking in water (when I rinse/bathe) and these boots have held up wonderfully. I did get a hole about an inch above the spur holder where the leather had torn from the stitching but that wasn't until about a year of wear and I definitely don't take good care of these boots. A had a leather guy put a patch over it and had no problems since! I just bought a second pair so i can rotate boots from day to day. I suggest the equifit gel leg protectors to help make the break in process less painful!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great fit and comfort, but not durable This is an update to a review of these boots. I have now been riding in them for 2.5 years, having owned 2 pairs of the front zip style. I absolutely love the fit and comfort of these boots, and the foot is so supportive, I can actually jog here and there around the farm in these boots! However, the first pair lasted about 15 months until and zipper jammed and the seams started ripping. My current pair has lasted a year and the seams are now starting to rip. I ride 6 days a week and wipe my boots clean every day after riding, condition them 2-3 times a week. I can't afford to keep dropping $500 a year on this boots, so will be switching to the Mountain Horse Victoria, my next favorite boot, for $200 less.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Front zip was painful I had purchased the back zip Volants previously and was very happy with them. The front zips were very painful and rubbed big sores on my ankles after one ride. Sending them back...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots! These boots are wonderful. They are very comfortable. It took only two or three rides before they felt broken in. I even use the black ones when I show. I can't imagine putting on my old field boots after riding in these. I have three pairs. One older pair for wearing around the farm, one for showing, and one for schooling.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy for Schooling I received these boots from my family for Christmas. Straight out of the box the leather was very supple and the foot bed very comfortable. The only break-in issue I had was that since the zipper runs across the front and side, they did not sag down my leg as quickly as my other Ariat tall boots have. This gave me the world's worst pressure sores behind my knees! But since then, I have loved every minute of wearing and riding in these! I choose the solid black color scheme so they could be worn in schooling shows (I actually did show in them at an A rated show and no one noticed!). My only complaint is that since there is so much external stitching for the modern design, the stitches are beginning to fray and the boots don't look as neat and tidy as they initially did. But I still love them to bits!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Comfy! The foot size runs a little big, just fyi but these are instantly broken in and so comfy my fav pair of boots yet!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfy and sharp looking I ordered these boots in the all black front zip style in a short/reg. I sure wish they came in a short/slim. The regular height went completely over my knee, so I would say these run pretty tall. They weren't bad to break in and are incredibly comfortable. I haven't had luck with ariat paddock boots lasting very long, so I only gave 4 stars for durability. Time will tell. I would definitely wear these at shows in jumpers. It might actually be hard to return to my other tall boots after these.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
