I rode every day this weekend, and I usually wear one pair of pants because my butt always sweats >.< Curse you english ridingg!

But for jackets I wear tank top, short/long sleeve shirt, hoodie/sweater, then a nice jacket. It's my knock off northface. I got it from marshall's! I like columbia's jackets too. They're as warm as the standard northface's that everyone and their mother wears, for about half, if not less the price.

I am always freezing my fingers and toes though D:<

Oxer, I'm saddened to say that I can't like you anymore

Got room for one more human and a dozen more nags?

Wellensteyn jackets FTW.

Expensive, but they're smart, warm and last!
Wellensteyn - Online

I have two- summer rain jacket and a bomber style winter one.

My mum has three xD

Mountain Horse makes a fabulous pair of winter tall boots - fleece lined and such.

Layers, layers, layers is all I have to say. Yesterday I wore a thermal shirt, loose sweater, wool pull-over, and then a hoodie over the top and I was fine in 19-20 F weather with wind and snow (my jacket recently went caput and I'm waiting for my new one to be shipped).

Also, ever seen those ThermaCare heat patches for people with sore/stiff backs? Get the 8 hour ones and use them, they really help a lot.

I got one of these for my trainer and then my BF got me one for Christmas.
The winters here can be brutal but this year so far there has been NO snow....
Right now things are way to warm for this time of year but when it is cold I just plug in the battery and warm right up!

Core Heat Softshell Vest - Gerbing's Heated Clothing

I just love this vest! If we had snow I would use it to snow shoe. I have used it when we went out to play on the ice and try some ice fishing.....frozen lake but no snow!

Forgot to add, I absolutely love my boots from the Original Muck Boot co.! My feet have never gotten cold in them. I only use them for chores and feeding (no riding) because they're too wide to safely put in stirrups.
