It is better not to wear your good riding boots for work in the stable. You need sturdy shoes or jodhpurs for this that can take a beating and are comfortable enough to walk on all day long. In addition, it is important that you do not get wet feet, so the shoe must be waterproof or at least water-repellent. Most BR stable shoes are also provided with moisture-regulating materials that keep your feet fresh and dry in the shoe. You should also make sure that your work shoe has a wear-resistant rubber sole that offers good grip during your work.
