The riding boot is an iconic symbol of the horse-centered life. There's a saying, "A man is known by his boots." (Undoubtedly also true for women!) With a single glance at your footwear, people can tell you spend your fair share of time in the saddle.
Our amazingly talented master jewelry craftsman have created this exclusive design specifically for our customers. Created in sterling silver and the finest 14K gold, this detailed riding boot pendant is a eye-catching 2 1/2 inches long. You'll love the substantial feel of this pendant - not to mention the way it instantly connects you with other riders.
The golden stirrup and spur are moveable, meaning you can adjust this pendant to look the way you like it best. We sell this pendant with an adjustable (up to 20 inches) silver rolo chain. Like all of the fine horse jewelry we sell, this pendant comes in our gift box - something to keep in mind as the holidays approach!
