    Though it's less expensive, I find the Heritage to be the better-looking boot. Softer leather, higher Spanish-cut top, more refined. I like the Cognac color of the Challenge a lot, but the darker...

    Try a different girth? If you're using a dressage girth, the length (placement of the buckles) may be the problem. They should sit well above the elbows. Especially important if his elbows are tied...
