OG Riding Habit Revisited

Boot Issues


For all the Doll Moms/Humans

The other week Kaya and I showed you the OG Riding Habit and Horse Care set that is part of Lily Anna's collection. There were some difficulties with the outfit. Those turned out to be tolerable if you can remain calm and patient.

Shortly after our return from vacation (thank you for your patience during our absence last week) it was time to change outfits. That's when the not so much fun started! These boots are TERRIBLE! I felt as if I was pulling Kaya's leg off and couldn't figure out how to get a spoon down inside to work as a shoe horn or boot jack. Even with them being unlaced I could barely get them to budge.

So I went for the scissors and very carefully extended the back slit another 1/4 or 1/2 inch. 

While these boots are cute and look very realistic, they will not be used again. Future rides will feature Josefina's riding boots or the lavender cowgirl boots or...well, just any other boots than these. 

If you should get the outfit set (because it is cute), I suggest you save yourself some frustration and just set the boots aside.  Or maybe they fit non-AG dolls better. Haley hasn't tried them on just yet. 

Best wishes,

  2. Eeek, that's not good, poor Kaya! With all the issues that I've had and I've read about with some of these OG sets, I look now, but I'm very hesitant to buy.

    1. I may have to start reading the reviews online first. Pieces work well and the pants came off easier than going on; that was a plus. :)

    1. You're welcome. One of the great services we provide each other is reviewing products honestly so others can search out great things or avoid the not so great. :-)

  5. The shoe thing is so strange to me with OG. They've stepped up their game considerably with outfits, but the shoes that come with them are just the worst. And what's even weirder is, they don't have to be that way. The OG shoes that you can buy separately are fantastic, and fit AGs just fine. I can't figure why they keep using these clunky hunks of plastic that look horrible on dolls they do fit, and don't fit AGs anyway.

    1. I know exactly what you mean. I only had one other issue and that was the purple rain boots. Those I had to cut down the back too, but they didn't have a slit at all. The other OG shoes we have work really well.
