Jodhpur & Paddock Boots – Summer Is For Shorts!

How’s the T-shirt tan coming along? As equestrians, we’re hardly known for our evenly bronzed skin from sitting on the beach in a dress and sandals. In truth, we’re more likely to have sketchy tan lines from rolling up our riding tights on the rare occasion we sit down for more than 5 minutes! Saying this, there’s one item in our riding wardrobe we can all be swapping out to keep us cool and comfortable as the weather gets warmer. Thankfully, it won’t even leave us with a tell-tale tan! Of course, we’re talking about ditching the tall boots for a pair of summer paddock or jodhpur boots. After all, summer is for shorts!

Short Riding Boots

Given our recent bout of glorious sunshine, did you take your boots off after a day at the yard and find your lower leg was hot and clammy? Unfortunately, while many tall riding boots are breathable and wicking, they simply can’t offer the same level of air flow as a short boot, it’s impossible! Often retaining heat and moisture, they’re really not ideal for day-to-day wear during the summer months. A more practical option, short boots have a whole host of advantages:

Cool & Breathable – They’re literally a breath of fresh air! Leaving your lower leg uncovered improves air flow, prevents heat retention and enables your trousers to wick away moisture. This keeps you cool and dry, avoiding uncomfortable rubbing and blisters.

Lower Cost – With prices from just £27.50, investing in a new pair of summer short boots won’t break the bank!

Style – Show off your socks! Add a splash of colour to your wardrobe with bold, bright, brilliant knee length socks! You can even pick a matchy matchy pair to complete your colour coordinating look!

Practicality – We don’t know about you, but breeches aren’t our usual go-to during warm weather! Instead we dig out a pair of lightweight riding tights with plenty of mesh panelling. Designed to be breathable and flexible, they’re perfect for pairing up with short boots!

Convinced? You soon will be, take a look at our most popular slip on, lace and zip styles!
