I wrote a while back about how I got an awesome surprise when I opened the box from Majyk Equipe that should have just contained leftover gen 1 small Dressage boots: All the Reasons Majyk Equipe Rocks.
So I was just absolutely beyond thrilled two times: The first, when ME decided to make the open fronts in small/pony size, and the second, when they decided to send me a pair. Of course, before I reviewed them, I cheerfully wandered over to Riding Warehouse and bought a pair of the small/pony hind boots to match. Can't do a proper review without the full set!
When I first opened the box, the most wonderful leather smell hit me. Genuine Argentinian leather, they say. I generally don't have the budget for nice leather, but these are NICE - and in my budget. We'll get to that later.
|Yes, they are tiny. My trainer saw them laying around and giggled at how tiny they are.|
Besides the classic Majyk Equipe amazing-value-for-the-price, the best thing about these boots is the removable, washable liner.
In true Majyk Equipe style, it's not neoprene, but a much more breathable interior lining, which really sets it apart from other open fronts. The interior is a soft, brushed fabric. Honestly, if I could take a nap in these boots, I would....

In conclusion, if you value style, protection, and heat dissipation, these are the boots for you. Also if you value value - the full set of these will set you back $275 at Riding Warehouse (and that's before any discount you'd get from buying during their awesome sales), whereas the comparable set of Equifits are over $420 from SmartPak. Almost half the price, and I don't feel like I'm compromising on any of the features of the EquiFits.
