I've heard that the Mountain Horse brand (I think that's what it is) is great. Some of my friends have them, and say that they are great! I, however, cannot afford winter riding boots, so I just put on thick socks and those little heat pack thingys :). That's always an option if you can't get winter boots in time :).

I have Mountain Horse Winter Riding Boots and I love them!



Yes they keep my feet very warm and toasty and they are also waterproof. They are great boots!

I am saving up for their new models though:





Then they also have these one's that I'm liking as well:

I've been thinking about getting some good winter boots as well! At the moment I just wear my regular ariats and smartwool socks....

MIE- how well do Mountain horse boots wear? I've bought the Ariat Cobalt devon Pros for years and can't get more then a year and a half out of them (nor can any trainer I know) which I think is ridiculous for $200 a pair. But can't find another brand that lasts longer. Haven't tried Mountain Horse yet. Also, are the winter ones bulky? They look a little bulky...

The older model Mountain Horse Rimfrost Rider II's are bulky, but their new model that is out this year are not.

The pair I have:



But I love them. I've owned mine for 4 years now without an issue. I even found another pair at a Tack Sale, brand new that I got for $10.00. lol. So I have a back up if need be.

The newer models are sleeker and slimmer:



But I think I am going to sell both my pairs of Mountain Horse boots and get the new, new, new, new ones:




I have a pair of Ariat Winter Boots as well, and I hate them. I am going to put those up for sale too - the issue I had with those are that the inside foam ripped open at the heel. Haven't used them since. I wont get another pair of over rated Ariats again.

Warning: This is going to sound very dumb

Can you wear them in summer or do your feet get to hot??

I'll stick with my warm socks.

This, also, might sound a bit stupid but the tread on the sole of those older boots, I can't imagine those would be good in the stirrup. I'm glad I live where it never gets too hot or too cold. A lot of people say the town I live in has the best climate in Australia.
