Thanks for all the ideas, MHFoundation: how cold is it where you are? Trying to put it into perspective(:
In my slip on western boots, it will fit & I just tuck it back into the top of the sock. If I'm wearing my lace up's and half chaps, I just tuck all the cord in and leave the pouch outside on top of half chaps and use a piece of twine and tie through the flap that snaps over the zipper.

Today is was 26 F.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

don't be fooled, I HATE winter. I like it when its so hot you carry an ice bottle with you for your ride! I've been looking at jackets that are supposed to be for below 0(: it was 30 today(: haha.

I'm a huge Carhartt fan; I suggest buying one of their jackets for riding and barn chores. For winter trail riding, my friends and I wear pajama pants under our jeans. I also have a few pairs of too-large cowboy boots that I can wear a few pairs of socks with.

I ride in 2 pairs of breeches.. tights on top, ribbed on the outside. I always have a tanktop tucked in, then a sweater, then a hoodie, and I always bring a few jackets along too. I wear thick rugby socks that go just below my knee and fingerless convertible mittens great for riding and after, just put the mitten portion on :P

My helmet is velvet with a silk inlay so my head is always toasty. I do need a new helmet though...

I have had great success with using cross country ski gloves, yes they are pricey, I think about $50, but they do keep your hands warm & allow for finer motor skill movements, like doing up keeper buckles, etc. These gloves are made for well below freezing temps.

so.... I rode in a tank top today. Hahahaha!
Okay okay... I know... i'm sorry... that's totally unfair.
Although, when I was a kid, I did ride in NY and WA... and was too broke to afford winter riding gear, so I rode with bread bags over my socks and then stuffed them in my riding boots to keep my feet warm!
