She really wants ariat bromonts but I just can't run to the cost sad

Any recommendations for cheaper versions?

What size and how much?
How about these?
My daughter got a leather pair just like them from
a local tack shop for about £95

ooh thanks good recommendation I might take a risk and get them in a 6 although I think she's a 5 and a bit

Are he get still growing? If not, and if you think she's going to keep on riding, the Ariats are worth it- the initial outlay is huge, but you can send them back to be reconditioned and they last forever. Dd's are 5 years old, and she wears them to do yard stuff as well as riding. And they still always polish up smartly for shows.

Her feet- obviously.

I bet they are lovely. My worry about the cheaper ones is the zip. She hunts and would love to wear them for that, but she gets properly muddy. But the ariats are about 300 sad

Bloody hell, are they? Dd's were 200! I suppose that was a while ago though, and grandma bought them for her anyway.....

There are new Bromonts selling on eBay for about £200? I love mine. Have brown and black and use them for everything!

If you google them Edgemere are doing gorgeous Bromonts for 195 pounds.

Go on eBay. I got a great nearly new pair of Regent boots for £30 including postage

Edgemere are down the road from me, never had any problems with them and they do good deals on Ariat jod boots as well

Only brown on that website and she needs black and they are 270. They do have some Dublin field boots which look quite nice though.
