>English boots vs.paddocks and
half-chaps - anyone care to share an opinion on this subject?
Very individual preferences. My husband loves
to ride in his English boots and can wear them for a 100-miler with ease, in the
hottest weather. Mine fit well enough and are comfortable, as far as
that goes, but I can't imagine wearing them for more than a couple of hours on a
hot day. But then I don't do half-chaps, either--I'm content with
knee-high tube socks under riding breeches, and running shoes.
