Whilst Horace Batten have always specialised in the traditional pull on riding boot, we are always prepared to address modern developments and changes in customer requirements, without compromising our our high standards. The riding boot with with zips at the back or side is a particular case.

The benefit of a zip boot is that it offers a very close fit around the ankle which is seen as a benefit by those who participate in many of the faster jumping sports. The disadvantage is that the zip is a weakness in that it will always have a limited life although, of course, it can be replaced.

We are currently working with a number of events riders to produce a boot incorporating all our traditional manufacturing methods and quality standards with modern style features, a new shape with quality performance.
