Unless you're riding for show, or in full dress, it doesn't matter as much what kind of boots you wear. As long as the boots have a good heel on them so that your foot doesn't slip through, either paddock boots or tall boots can be worn. (Or any other pair of boots.)

paddock boots are great for lessons and just fooling around at the barn, but once you get more serious with you're riding it is better to get tall boots (espiacialy for showing).
