I apologize in advance for yet another dress boot thread! But I am a convert to dressage from H/J land and know nothing about dress boots! I have been showing dressage for the last few years in my Ariat Crownes, but now that my boy and I are successfully moving up the levels, I think its time to invest in a pair of dress boots.
Any recommendations would be appreciated. I would like to keep the price under $500 and I DO NOT like super stiff. I am pretty typical in the size department, so fitting shouldn't be a problem. Also, I am not opposed to buying from overseas. I have looked a little and it seems like the prices are better there. Thanks!

I am VERY jealous.

The folks at my barn who have them absolutely ADORE their Mountain Horse boots. Everyone with a pair says they are the most comfortable boots they've ever owned. They're not a fancy name, but apparently are decent quality.
My horse is a dressage diva so I don't have to be.

I love my Dehners. Good quality leather, lined, not overly stiff. However, you would have to find a very good deal to keep them under $500. I think they start at about $550. I did find a very good deal after a tack swap and got them for $125. Needed new boots and wasn't really looking because I couldn't afford them. I couldn't pass up this deal.
I love the MH dress boots. In addition, the company has great customer service. An older pair had a faulty elastic gusset, and MH replaced them for me with no hassle. I now have new Mountain Horse Dress boots, they look great, and are super comfortable.
I love finding something that works!! Good luck boot shopping!
