REVIEW Mountain Horse Sovereign Riding Boots


Here, we review the Mountain Horse Sovereign Riding Boots, which have some fantastic features that we just couldn’t wait to tell you about!

Finding the correct footwear for riding can be tricky, and with many varieties on the market, it can be difficult to decide which ones suit best.

You need to look out for a few key things when purchasing a pair of horse riding boots. You want a boot with a small heel for safety, a suitable grip on the sole for stirrups, and a strong and durable upper.

Riding boots aren’t cheap either, but there’s a good reason why. The skill taken to make a boot fit for purpose, with the added durability for all weather conditions, requires special craftsmanship. There are also numerous design choices, styles and materials to choose from, making the decision even harder.

Key Features of the Mountain Horse Sovereign Riding Boots

Flexnotch™ technology

The Mountain Horse Sovereign Riding Boots are made with an exclusive Flexnotch™ technology that provides a softer and easier heel-down position (in the stirrups). We feel it is important to feel comfortable whilst riding, and this boot aims to provide you with all the comfort you crave.

Unlike some boots that just feel hard on your heels and don’t provide much flexibility. The ShockX™ ergonomically designed cushioning footbed is also a nice touch for even more comfort.

Hidden Elastic

We love the hidden elastic at the back of the boot. The Mountain Horse Sovereign Riding Boot is made with a genuine YKK® zipper in the back and provides elastic along the inside back of the shaft. This provides the rider with much more flexibility and comfort, as well as the ability to achieve a much better fit to the leg.


The Mountain Horse Sovereign Riding Boot is made from hardwearing, lustrous full-grain leather upper. The entire range of Mountain Horse Riding Boots is known for durability and suppleness; we think this is a key advantage to help these boots last. They look great, too, and exhibit a beautiful shine and finish that will have you looking the absolute biz.


We love nothing more than some added extras with a horsie purchase. The Mountain Horse Sovereign Riding Boots come with complimentary inflatable boot trees (otherwise known as ‘shoe trees’) and a boot bag. This is so handy. The inflatable boot trees help keep your footwear in shape, so they always look fresh and new. The boot bag is great for storing your footwear at home or when travelling to a show where you want to ensure your boots stay as shiny as you left them after cleaning.


You’ll probably find these boots come up at the top end of your budget, as they retail at around £250-£300. With the high price point, we’d certainly recommend you keep these for competing and keeping your other riding boots on hand at home – don’t forget to break them in though


The sizing in these boots can come up small. We’d recommend purchasing one size larger than normal. They are available in boot sizes 36 – 42 and come in a variety of calf sizes.


Overall the Mountain Horse Sovereign Riding Boots are a fantastic purchase. The reviews themselves second this, and there are many happy customers who absolutely love these boots.

Mountain Horse is a very popular brand and we would not consider these riding boots particularly cheap, however, they are made from very high-quality durable leather that tends to be much more expensive than some of the synthetics boots on the market.
