Inspired by Secretariat:
The legendary racehorse had a heart that was triple the size of a standard racehorse and won the 1973 Triple Crown (Kentucky Derby, The Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes) . It is widely accepted that Secretariat is the G.O.A.T. setting speed records across different distances and surfaces he annihilated opponents and shattered course records throughout his illustrious career.
Sizing Ariat Boots:
Ariat boots tend to run a little bigger than conventional brands such as Clarks, Ugg etc. At Houghton Country, we recommend going ½ a size smaller to ensure a true fit.
Ariat also offers a wide fitting boot which is designed to fit more comfortably for people with a wider calf muscle.
Caring for your Ariat Boots:
Cleaning after use:
Ariat recommends cleaning your riding boots, particularly after some heavy outdoor use. If your boots are muddy, start by using a damp cloth to remove mud and dirt, for tougher areas you can use a soft brush to loosen stubborn areas. Don't forget to clean the zips too!
Houghton Country stocks a range of Ariat care and cleaning products which can help maintain leather and suede.
