Rules to play Equestrianism
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 players leg from wayward polo balls as well as bumps from another riders 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.
