Do I need to order the custom boot forms for my Tucci boots?

The custom boot forms are recommended but not required for your custom. They will keep your boots upright and help maintain the leather. The wooden boot forms are superior in many ways over the traditional plastic or metal boot forms. Please keep in mind that these are boot forms that are custom made for your boots. Hence, they will only fit your boots.
The custom boot forms cost $575.

Help! My Custom Tucci boots do not fit

Worry Not, we are here to help. We have a reputation of taking care of our customers. We will first check whether the boots were made to the right measurement. If needed, we will re-measure your legs and order another set of boots to be made. Be rest assured, we will address the situation in a way that is most favorable to our customers.

What does “Fully Custom” mean?

The term “custom boots” is loosely thrown around many times by other bootmakers. While we can not comment on what they mean, for us, it means completely custom boots. Allow us to clarify: Each part of your boot (heel, foot, instep, toe base, toe width, height etc) is made to measure. This means that the bottom part of your tall boot is not simply a standard size short boot (referred to as a “semi-custom”).
As an example, consider that your right foot is shaped and/or sized differently than your left foot. In this case, all these differences are accounted for when producing your custom boots.
Your custom boots are custom exclusively for you.

What models of Tucci Boots are available for Dressage?

For dressage boots, there are several different options for boots. Please do keep in mind, that minor alterations to the design are possible. Also, you can combine design elements from different models. You can design your dream boot.

What is the cost of the custom Dressage Boots by Tucci?

The Custom Dressage Boots by Tucci start at $1575. This is the base price for fully custom boots. However, if you would like to add additional options (Swarovski crystals, punch toe design etc), there will be add-on charges.

How long does it take for custom dressage boots by Tucci?

Normally, it takes 8 to 10 weeks. However, wait times of upto 6 months can be expected. We will inform you at the time of ordering the expected wait time.

How do I measure myself for Tucci boots?

Tucci Boots - How To Measure

Where is the Size Chart for the Ready-To-Wear Tucci Boots?

I am unsure about the model for my custom dressage boots by Tucci. Can I decide later?

Yes, we only require a 50% deposit at the time of ordering. Please note that the boots will not begin to be manufactured until you have decided on model and all pertinent details/options.

What colors and leather grades are available?

Tucci has almost 100 different leather textures/grades and colors available. We can show you examples of boots we have done in the past. We can also guide you for selecting the appropriate leather grade and texture depending on usage.

Do I need to come to your Wellington store for a measurement?

Yes, we recommend it.

What if I am not in Wellington? Or do not have plans to visit Wellington?

If you do not live in the South Florida area, we can come to you. However, please arrange for atleast 4 pairs of boots. Either you can order multiple pairs or ask your friends. It is not difficult to find people wanting these beautiful Tucci boots.

I already know my size in Tucci boots. Can I just place an order for the custom boots?

This is easy, since the hard part is already done. We will be glad to send you the swatches of leathers so you can pick your options.

What about custom Tucci boots for show jumping?

This is what we specialize in. Most of our orders for custom boots are from the show jumping riders. If you already know what style you want to order, all we need is a measurement. It is ideal for you to be measured in our store. However, if that is not an option, we can arrange for other options. Please Contact Us so we can arrange.

Tucci Boots For Show Jumping

Tall Boots by Tucci

Primarily, there are 4 models of show jumping boots by Tucci (not considering the short-boots-mini-chaps combination boots).

  • Harley Model – This is the most popular show jumping boot.
  • Leonardo – This is the plain and classic dress boot. Another uni-sex boot. Tucci Tall Riding Dress Boots "Leonardo"
  • Galileo – The Classic Field Boot (also uni-sex) Tucci Galileo Field Boots with Laces
  • Sofia – Classic Dress Boots designed exclusively for Women Tucci Boots - Riding Dress Boots "Sofia"

Short Boots & Mini Chaps Combinations by Tucci

Introduced about 4 years ago, the Harl Boots – Mini Chaps combination boots are the most popular combination boots on the market. Designed with a classic look, these boots have become the de-facto standard in combination boots.

The Tucci Harley Boots and chaps have a snap-on system for connecting. You can hardly tell these apart from the tall boots. The best part about these combination boots is the ability to choose boots and chaps in different sizes. The boots come in about 10 sizes ranging from EU 36 (US Women’s Size 5) through EU 46 (US Men’s Size 12). The chaps are available in 12 sizes ranging from XS through XXL.

Don’t Settle! You Have (Many) Options for Custom Riding Boots

Often times, we sense a reluctance from customers when it comes to moving forward on custom riding boots. The reasons for this may be one of the following:

  • I need the boots today. I can not wait for 4-6 weeks.
  • What if the boots do not fit well when they arrive?
  • Are the custom boots going to cost me a fortune vs. ready-to-wear stock boots?

In this post, we explore the reasons behind these questions and attempt to answer them. We hope this will assist in your decision-making process.

Maybe you are looking to order custom boots because you do not fit in standard size boots? Maybe they fit but not quite as well as they could? Or maybe you would want boots that look a bit more unique? Something that reflects your personality.

Dressage or Show Jumping, we have you covered

Why Equitus Alpha is the Bridle Of The Year

Schockemoehle Sports Equitus Alpha Anatomic Bridle - Explanation of how it works

There has been a recent trend towards anatomic bridles, particularly in dressage. Dressage is the most nuanced of all equestrian disciplines. Controlled and accurate movements require precise timing and co-ordination between horse and rider. Small details come into play and become bigger factors.

One such not-so-small detail is the comfort of your horse’s neck, ears, facial nerves. If the horse experiences excessive pressure on its ears, neck or facial nerves, the ride will not be smooth. In fact, you may not even know the reason why after seemingly doing all the right things and training aids, you are not getting optimal performance.

Schockemoehle Sports Equitus Alpha Anatomic Bridle - Explanation of how it works
Schockemoehle Sports Equitus Alpha Anatomic Bridle – Explanation of how it works

Look closer and you may find the issue. Your horse may be feeling excessive pressure on its facial nerves or neck. That may explain why it is not performing to its fullest potential. This is where anatomic bridles comes in. The term “anatomic” has been somewhat misused to imply as if it solves all the problems.

Not too long ago, PS Of Sweden introduced its own line of anatomic bridles. They have been very successful and our customers have been quite pleased with them. Read Pressure Relief with PS Of Sweden Bridles 

New for this season, is the new line of anatomic bridles from Schockemoehle Sports. These bridles have been designed from the ground up. Schockemoehle Sports has a deep expertise in the design and production of bridles. Their forte has traditionally been dressage bridles. This year, the Anatomic line by Schockemoehle Sports is a novel approach to solve the problems centered around the comfort of the horse. The idea is that if the horse is comfortable and fully relaxed, then it will perform at its highest level without too many training aids.

See for yourself in the picture below how the Equitus Alpha bridle delivers on all its promises.

Schockemoehle Sports Anatomic Bridle Equitus Alpha - Black/Silver
Schockemoehle Sports Anatomic Bridle Equitus Alpha – Black/Silver

What makes the bridle “anatomic”?

The big factor in this equation is the bridle. Schockemoehle Sports Anatomic Bridles all have the following features:

  • Softly Padded Headpiece with Anatomic Shape
  • Curved Caveson bypasses the main facial nerve
  • Curved Browband allows full movement of eyes and ears
  • Flashstrap position enables un-restricted breathing

Not only has Schockemoehle Sports delivered a hit product with real useful application, the quality of the bridles is top notch. From carefully selected leather to accurate stitching, it is hard to find a fault in these bridles. With so many happy and pleased customers, this is a testament to the reputation of Schockemoehle Sports’ leather work.

Feedback

So far, the anatomic bridles from Schockemoehle have been received very well in Wellington (and all over United States). One look at the bridle and you can see how it benefits your horse and ultimately your riding experience. No need for bulky nosebands that restrict breathing. No need to rig up your existing bridle with solutions that may only worsen the situation. What do you think? We want to hear from you. Leave us a comment. Do you own one of these bridles?

Spur to a new level with Flex On Interchangeable Spurs “No Spur Straps Needed”!

Flex On Eper On Interchangeable Spur - Blue

We have all observed the evolution of spurs over the last 2 years. The interchangeable spurs have made a big splash on the riding circuit. These spurs allow the rider to not carry a multitude of individual spurs for different horses. Instead, the interchangeable spur ends provide all the spurs you need. With different spur-ends, you can easily switch back and forth between different mounts. Whether the attachment mechanism is magnetic (for example the Mandtis Spur Set) or its screw-on (for example the Makebe Spur Set), changing spurs has become a lot easier than before.

The objective of this article is to educate you on how the Flex On Interchangeable Spurs work. By the time you finish reading this article, you will have all your questions answered. You will be able to compare the various options available for Interchangeable Spurs, whether it be the Mandtis Spur Set or Makebe Spur Set or Flex On Interchangeable Spurs.

Spur Revolution : Who needs spur straps?

The Flex On Interchangeable Spurs are one of a kind, in that they do not require spur straps. The clean minimalist design seems so obvious now. Why do you need Spur Straps when you can just snap them on? No more marking your boots with the rubbing of the spur straps or the buckle digging into your ankle!

Questions and Answers

How do I know what size to order?

The spurs are sized according to boot sizes.

The Spurs come in 4 different sizes to accommodate different foot sizes:

  • Small (for shoe sizes EU36-EU37, USA Women’s Sizes 6.5 – 7)
  • Medium (for shoe sizes EU38-EU41, USA Women’s Sizes 7.5 – 10, USA Men’s Sizes 6 – 8)
  • Large (for shoe sizes EU42-EU44, USA Women’s Sizes 10.5 and up , USA Men’s Sizes 8.5 – 10.5)
  • Extra Large (for shoe sizes EU 45-EU46, USA Men 11.5 and higher)

How Do The Flex On Interchangeable Spurs Work?

The Flex On Spurs are meant to be slipped onto the back of your boots. Once you get used to slipping them on, you will notice the time savings vs traditional spurs.

Here is a video showing you how easy it is to put these spurs on:

The spurs themselves are light weight and very pleasing to look at. The aesthetics of these spurs makes them so much more attractive. The construction of the spurs enables them to stay in place attached to your boots. They are made from anti-slip rubber and plastic composite.

Do the Flex On Spurs work with any boots?

Yes, almost all boots, with the exception of those that do not have a heel. The Flex On Spurs work by attaching the plastic piece below the heel part of the boots. So most traditional boots are compatible with these spurs. However, boots that do not have a well defined heel.

What colors are the Flex On Spurs available?

The Flex On Spurs are available in a variety of colors, including Black, Blue, Navy, Red, Pink, Brown, Light Gray, Dark Grey, Pink and White.

Are the Flex On Spurs allowed in Hunter Competition?

As far as we know, there is no limitation on the use of these spurs. From dressage to show jumping and hunter riders, everyone has adopted these well. However, each competition and its officiating staff is different. So we would recommend that you check with your technical judges prior to purchase.

Conclusion

The latest innovative product to hit the equestrian market is from Flex On. Completely re-thought from the ground up. Have you used these spurs? What are your thoughts? We would like to know. Leave us a comment below!
