  • Whether you’re shopping on a tight budget, looking for a pair of cheap riding boots for everyday wear to tide you over or just thinking about getting into riding, we’ve got you covered. We’ve rounded up a selection of the best riding boots on a budget – under £100 for long riding boots and under £50 for short boots.

    Shopping on a budget doesn’t mean you won’t find a great pair of cheap riding boots, but you might have to make a few compromises. While you won’t be able to find your dream pair of made-to-measure customised dress boots under £100, you will be able to take advantage of some technical features. You’ll also find yourself a bit more restricted if you’re specifically looking for brown boots or different calf width options – that’s certainly not to say you won’t find them, but there are fewer to choose from. You’ll also find more synthetic options as these are generally cheaper to produce than leather, but they’re also easier to look after and they often come with elasticated panels to offer a wider variety of fits.
