How To Measure For Your Mountain Horse Boots

Measuring for your long riding boots is essential to ensure a proper fit, comfort, and safety while horseback riding. Here's how you can measure for riding boots:

  1. Gather Necessary Supplies: You will need a flexible measuring tape or a piece of string, a pen or marker, and a ruler or tape measure.

  2. Wear Appropriate Clothing: Wear the type of socks or riding apparel you plan to wear while riding. This ensures an accurate measurement.

  3. Measure Your Calf: Sit down with your feet flat on the ground and your knees bent at a 90-degree angle, similar to the position when riding. Measure the widest part of your calf while wearing breeches or pants. Place the measuring tape around the fullest part of your calf muscle. Make sure the tape is snug but not too tight. Take note of this measurement.

  4. Measure Your Height: Mountain Horse provides a range of height and width options for their long riding boots. Measure from the floor to the back of your knee while seated in the riding position to determine your height measurement.

  5. Measure Your Foot: Sit down and trace the outline of your foot onto a piece of paper. Ensure you are wearing the socks you plan to wear with your boots. Measure the length from the tip of your big toe to the back of your heel. Repeat this process for both feet, as they may differ slightly in size. Use the larger measurement for sizing purposes.

  6. Consult Sizing Charts: Different boot brands may have varying sizing charts, so it's essential to consult the Mountain Horse Sizing Guide for Long Riding Boots this will help  to correlate foot and calf measurements with corresponding long riding boot sizes.

  7. Consider Additional Factors: In addition to measurements, consider other factors such as foot width, arch height, and any specific features you may need, such as extra room in the calf area or ankle support.

  8. Try On Boots: Once you have determined your measurements and selected a size based on the manufacturer's sizing chart, try on the boots. Pay attention to how they feel on your feet and calves. They should be snug but not overly tight, with enough room to flex your ankle and move your toes comfortably.    

  9. With an In Store consultation with our fitting professional: If you're uncertain about measuring or sizing, consider visiting a professional boot fitter or a reputable equestrian store.
