After a safety helmet, long leather riding boots are the most relevant piece of equipment for the dressage rider.  Not only are they safe and protect your leg but if you aspire to the classical still and effective leg of the top professionals you really need to be speaking to us!  At Classic Dressage we have been fitting boots for over 20 years and would be delighted to help you with your next dressage boot. 


We are exhibiting at Badminton Horse Trials (stand 189) and Royal Windsor Horse Show (stand B135) where we will have a large selection of boots for you to try.   We will have specialist measuring staff for both Konig and Petrie – the premium products on the market.  If you want to ride to the best of your ability and look fantastic into the bargain then please visit us at either of these shows where we will devote the time to you and make sure you get the boots of your dreams or help you make the correct choice for your first pair of dressage boots.



Visit us at Badminton Horse Trials – we’ll be set up for trading from Wednesday 3rd May to Sunday 7th May.  Stand 189.  We’ll have boots starting at £225 and after that the sky’s the limit!

If Badminton dosen’t work, we will be at Royal Windsor from Wednesday 10th May until Sunday 14th May. 



Let’s talk you through what you will be able to see and try at these two shows …..  Firstly brands.  We work with who we consider to be the very best in the market.  Konig have always been our preferred choice of professional boot and they are the choice of the world’s top riders.  Petrie are a modern brand that have introduced new styles and concepts into the very traditional world of dressage – and we love them too!  If you come and see us we will help you with a new pair of work boots or your very first pair of long leather boots.  If you are worried about cost, we have some keenly priced boots that are ideal for the ‘starter’ rider.  We have the following boots in stock ready for you to try.   And we always like to collaborate with our favourite brands to offer you a special show promotions –  and this year we’ve got some free boot bags and a very special price on the Konig Youngster!  If you’d like to spread the cost of your boots over a year – we can organise that too!
