We put our products to the test in our barns and on our horses, so we're confident that you'll be thrilled with your purchase. However, we know that life in the barn can sometimes be unpredictable. That's why we've created a stress-free return policy. If you purchase an item and it doesn't meet your expectations, we want to know about it, take care of you and give you your money back.

Free Return Shipping on all Sized Items

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!

The Fine Print

We love our products and we're happy to take them back - even custom items. We'll happily take back everything from engraved halters to personalized jackets - even embroidered blankets that have been worn (minus the manure, please). But there are a few things we have to restrict returns on (silly federal regulations).

Undergarments
Health regulations require that undergarments (including bras) need to be in new condition (tags and packages intact) in order to be returned. (Even if it wasn't required, do you really want to shop from a store that takes back used undergarments?!)

Saddles
As riders, we know what a big investment a saddle is. That's why we're proud to offer the best Test Ride program in the business. You can keep our Test Ride saddles risk-free for five days, to really make sure you like the fit and the feel. We know that to truly try a saddle, you have to really ride in it. So go ahead and girth it up. Forget about wrapping your stirrup leathers. Try it with or without a saddle pad. Basically, treat it like you already bought it, so you can make sure you really want to. Because when you buy a saddle from us, we want to make sure you love it. Of course, we want our other customers to love their new saddles, too.
That's why we have a Test Ride option for each saddle we carry - so that all of the other saddles can stay in pristine condition, waiting for their new owners. For this reason, if you purchase a saddle outside the Test Ride program, it's still eligible for return, but must be free from any marks or damage.

So that's it. Seriously. Those are all of our "rules." Well, except the most important one - treating our customers the way we want to be treated. So if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do, please call us at 1-800-461-8898 or email CustomerCare@SmartPak.com. We are always happy to help.

Ariat Fit Tips!
 
Premium full grain leather shaft with perforations make this boot soft to the touch; Gore stretch panel allow for generous fit; Elasticized instep provides more mobility and flex through foot and ankle;  If between calf measurements, opt for smaller calf; V Sport makes a great option for a rider wanting more accommodation through the foot of the boot

Additional Tips & Tricks

  •  Ariat uses the highest quality zippers, coiled YKK #10
  •  “Tall & Tight” is the motto. The zipper should not glide up easily, but it should NOT take you 40 minutes to zip them either
  • Height is correct when you see a “V” behind the knee when you do a slight squat
  •  You can expect a ¼” to a ½” drop in height in tall boots
  •  Heel lifts (or small tack sponge) can be used as an aid during break- in
  • Calf and height measurements change every other foot size on the ½ size.   So, 7.5 and 8 have the same measurements, as do 8.5 and 9

INSIDER EXCLUSIVE : This can work to your advantage! If an 8 slim is too tight and a 8 regular is too loose, then try the 8.5 slim since that will fall between the two calf sizes.

    Ariat® V Sport Zip Tall Boot - All Over Black is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from If only they fit me!! I honestly fell in love with these boots as soon as I took them out of the box. They are edgy and eye-catching, but not distracting or obnoxious. The leather is beautiful and the boot itself is comfortable. Unfortunately, they just didn’t fit the shape of my leg well and left a sizable gap at the top. A different Ariat style fit me better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the grip Bought them about a month ago, loved them the first time I rode in them. So grippy held my leg in position. Very little break in as walking in them. Great use them 5 days a week. Also my calf is a very hard to fit calf/leg.
    Date published: 2019-10-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Surprised for the Price, Comfortable I'm 5 feet tall, about 105 lbs, with little skinny bird legs but wide (thought little) feet. The problem I ALWAYS have is finding a boot that is wide enough in the foot while not swimming in the calf or having them be way too tall. If I go up a size to fit my wider foot then the calf width and boot height only gets much worse. I'm a dressage rider and my every day and show boots are De Niros, which actually fit pretty dang well for off the shelf, but there's absolutely no room for anything but a very thin sock in the foot. I live in Western Montana so wearing "summer" boots in the winter is not an option, especially as riding is my profession so I can't grin and bare the cold for a one horse day as I'm in my riding boots many hours a day and it's REALLY cold here in the winter. For the last several years I've worn my very old and beloved Ariat Hunter Dress Boots (which I really wish were still made...) with a rubber gator on the foot and since they'd stretched enough in the foot over all their years of use I could get a wool sock, a toe warmer in, and with winter breeches I was good to go. I also don't really like the "snow boot" effect of most proper winter boots and the Ariat Bromonts are both too tall and way too wide in the calf as their sizing options are limited. Basically, I have never been able to find a proper winter boot that even kind of fits so imagine my horror when the zippers in the old Ariats went for the 79th time and the shoe repair guy said there was no way to get another zipper on them. So the search began for a boot that would be comfortable (read: Ariats in general), provide enough room in the foot for a thick sock, a toe warmer, and still some breathing room/air to not constrict my toes, but also would fit in the other dimensions... And these have delivered! I ordered up a half size from my normal shoe size (to a 7 from a 6.5) to allow for more warm nonsense around my foot, based on other reviewers stating that the calf ran narrow I opted for the regular calf instead of slim even though slim would technically have been the right measurements, and got the short height. They're perfect. If I didn't have a very thick winter breech on and a thick sock, the calf would actually be a bit too big, and it still is to a small degree, but the ankle is definitely quite narrow and "shapely" in this boot, despite the fact that I have very little ankles, so the narrower calf would probably be just a bit too narrow for my needs. I think if you don't have very slim ankles then the calf sizing on this boot could get tricky. I think the foot runs true to size as it's an excellent fit with the thick sock and toe warmer with still a little room, so the usual 6.5 foot would probably be perfect only if I wanted them to fit for summer riding. It seems the toe box is a bit wider than other Ariat boots I've tried, too. The height (at 17", technically too high based on measurements and my other boots) is ideal in that it's a bit too tall and given how the leather in these boots is fairly soft and on the thinner side (versus a traditional rigid/stiff/thick dress boot) I'm sure they'll drop at least 1/4" even though they're snug in the ankle, so maybe the height runs "short". This is DEFINITELY not a legit winter boot in that it's heavily vented and obviously not insulated, but it does have a nice sturdy looking sole that wraps around the foot of the boot. The other plus is that I think they'll still work just fine for the rare occasions that I jump, which is a real uncomfortable bummer when you're in rigid dress boots and you prefer a short jumping length in the stirrup. I've not worn them much yet but they feel like they'll break in very quickly, they're comfortable, and there's nothing about them that is bugging my feet despite my tendency to encounter "Princess and the Pea" issues with riding boots and footwear in general. They look nice, even though I'm used to a front/side zipper versus rear, the zipper itself is quite hardy looking, and there's a nice little extra piece of leather inside the boot that goes up quite high to protect the back of your ankle from the zipper. Totally pleased with the purchase especially given the price since finding good boots that aren't at least several hundred dollars is difficult. How they'll hold up? Dunno. I assume they wouldn't last forever because they are quite soft, and I'm sure they'll end up a bit on the slouchy side since the leather is that type, but for the price I'd be happy to buy them again in a few years' time if they really wore out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ariat, of course. I only buy Ariat boots.Tall boots can be trickier to fit, so had to return the 1st pair. I'm 5'4" and needed short length. Other reviewers correctly stated that regular calf is pretty tight, I ordered wide, which is REALLY wide. But these boots also come in a full calf, which is perfect for me at 138#. LOVE them, no break in period required. Wore them around the house for an hour & rode for 3-3.5 hours without any issues. Very nice looking boot. Highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable boot from day one! I needed a new pair of tall boots for special events with our mounted posse group. I wanted something comfortable yet dressy looking. These boots were very comfortable from the first day and they make the uniform look very professional.
    Date published: 2019-08-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite boots! I have the reviews on here and just have to say that these are NOT custom boots and not every leg/foot is going to fit in them perfectly. But they DO fit my leg and foot PERFECTLY! I have very skinny heels and usually have trouble w blisters. I have no issues whatsoever with these and do not need to "break them in". I am on my second pair because I LOVE them! I have had my last pair for over 4 years and the area that is glued together at the toe separated (I can take it to the shoe maker and have it repaired; pretty simple fix). I beat the heck out of these boots (not on purpose, though) and they have held up extremely well! I've walked through water, mud and snow. I've cleaned stalls in them.... yuck I also disagree that they are hard to clean (because the outside of the boot is perforated leather). I just use Lexol cleaner and Lexol conditioner; just a little elbow grease. These boots are extremely comfortable in the saddle and while running errands. They are SOOOO sharp looking! The full grain leather on the inside provide lots of grip in the saddle. An all around great boot! They also come in a variety of height/width options. Make sure you measure! (I usually wear an 8, but 7.5 in this boot fits me)
    Date published: 2019-06-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I have a very high arch and these boots are perfect! The sales person at the tack store recommended I buy 1 whole size larger and that was really good advice as my wide foot fits perfectly. They broke in easily, no rubbing anywhere, and still look great!
    Date published: 2019-06-02
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not true to size Ordered the Wide Tall in an 11. The calf was supposed to be 16.5 inches. Measured 16 inches on the outside. Inside was 15.25 inches. Not going to work. Will try an xwide medium (which will not likely be tall enough...)
    Date published: 2019-05-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable tall boots that fit like a glove!! I purchased these after my prior pair of inexpensive non-Ariat tall boots wore out. I absolutely LOVE these boots! The fit was perfect right out of the box, and broke in painlessly, and dropped just the right amount. They fit me so well that my trainer thought I was wearing custom boots (she was shocked when I mentioned that they weren't). And the footbed is amazingly comfortable, both in and out of the saddle. I can ride in them for hours, or teach an entire day of therapeutic riding lessons, and my feet aren't throbbing at the end of the day…YAY!! They are also durable. I have worn them every day, and they aren't showing any signs of wear.
    Date published: 2019-04-08
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great to ride in, but sizing odd Agree with other users- I'm typically a 7.5 but the 7.5 was way too big in the foot and ankle. I sent them back for a 7, which fit better in the ankle (although a bit snug) but the calf is more snug as well. I went for the regular calf, and I have pretty slim calves but even the 7 regular is VERY tight. I have friends who told me they will stretch, though. All that being said, I loved riding in them- the grip is perfect. I'm hoping they break in well.
