Riding Boots for Polo Players
Polo players have different preferences regarding the style, flexibility, and weight of
their riding boots.
||Most polo riding boots are brown leather for a practical reason:
black boot polish would stain the white polo breeches during a game. Polo boots protect
a player's leg from wayward polo balls as well as bumps from another rider's horse.
Polo boots also provide a surface to grip the sides of the horse.
Equestrian riding boots come in a variety of styles and quality. When buying polo boots, try them on first and
select a pair that is comfortable, particularly around the ankle area. It takes a couple of
days of riding and a little saddle soap to break in a new set of polo boots.
Spurs can be attached to loops fitted to a boot. Polo spurs are rounded to protect the
polo pony from injury.
