I have never ridden English, but was gifted some riding boots by a woman who did dressage with warmbloods. I'm not sure if the boots fit correctly. They are my size, but the ankle feels SO tight. It's really difficult to get them on, and it always seems to "stop" at the ankle where the top of your foot meets your ankle. Getting them off is even harder. I have to have someone help me get them off. I've heard others need the same help. But, since I don't really know how English wear is supposed to fit, I thought I'd ask? Getting them off, one person pulls while I pull my foot out. My foot becomes wedged in the shoe and the boot feels as though it's being pushed and not quite "crushed" but definitely uncomfortable until I can get my foot from being wedged in that position. Is that how it's supposed to fit? The boots are, in my opinion, great shape and once on they are fairly comfortable and great for my (western) riding as long as I keep the top of the boots covered. Thanks for any information! Sorry to ask, but just curious as to how it's supposed to fit and if they are the "right" fit for me.
