Okay so I don;t do the whole cowboy thing but my son wants soem cowboy boots for riding horses...

Where do you buy kids cowboy boots? Do I have to go somewhere like Horse Town or can I just go to Shoe Carnival or something.

  • Zappos.com had some nice ones around Christmas time, it's hard to find leather cowboy boots for kids!

  • You won't find any at shoe carnival, but most western stores carry children's sizes. I found a good selection at Cavendar's Boot City, but I don't know what stores might be available where you live.  If you order online be aware that boot sizes are different than shoe sizes. My son was wearing size 8 tennis shoes and he needed sizes 6.5 boots.

  • Wal-Mart has decent (if cheap is okay) ones. Otherwise for good ones, more expensive ones, you'll need to go to a Western store, or even any farm supply store often carries a small variety of boots.

  • Is he a beginner or advanced level rider?


     


    Basically any boot you find that has a visible heel is fine for beginning level riders. So wal mart, or fashion cowboy boots are fine for beginners.


     


    The heel is the more important part, it keeps the foot from slipping entirely through the stirrup, if the rider were to fall . You don't want to be hanging upside down because your foot slipped through the stirrup when the horse is running like that!

  • He does Therapy riding once a week. He has been riding for over a year but it is on a lead so he isn't doing anything crazy. He just wants them because 'He is a real cowboy now' He has decided this just recently.
