One can safely wear combat boots on horseback when riding bareback or if the saddle is equipped (and every saddle should be) with safety breakaway stirrups (see http://westernsafetystirrups.com/history.htm). Click on the design tab to see how this type stirrup works. Make certain your combat boot toe isn’t too large to easily escape the safety stirrup of choice.
Barefoot or open toe foot ware begs spider, scorpion, or snake bite and exposes the foot to poison ivy, oak, and sumac. High heels for the women are totally useless for anything other than turning the occasional male head (but some like me, prefer ladies wearing sensible shoes, including combat boots).
