    What do you ride in in winter?

    What do you wear when you ride in winter? I'm pretty tired of 5 different layers making me look 300 lbs LOL. Usually I'll wear a long sleeve shirt, a sweatshirt, coat, sweatpants under jeans, 3 pair of socks, and cowboy boots.

    I ride english, so fleece breeches are godly hahaha I don't get cold too easily. But I found that a fleece sweatshirt under a normal sweatshirt keeps me pretty toasty. As far as feet go, I need to invest in some winter riding boots, as thermal socks lie :P hahaha

    I don't get cold too easily, but I wear long underwear under jeans most of the time. If I don't wear that, I wear sweatpants over jeans. That probably seems backwards and awkward but it's CRAZY warm. It keeps all of the heat in. It's fantastic.
    Then I just wear a T-shirt, a columbia fleece zip-up and a jacket.
    Then I have a carhart hat.
    And I found these fantastic mitten things at fleet farm that just cover the palm of your hand so you don't get the bulk of multiple pairs of gloves and you can just wear a thin pair of gloves(like the magic stretch ones) and then put these over it and you don't feel like you have monster hands AND your hands stay warm.
    I also am in love with my carhart wool socks. They are pricey but they work SO well and keep your toes warm.

    I usually wear under amour with fleece lined, winter breeches on top and then an under amour long sleeve top with a t-shirt on top. I stick a fleece on top of that and then a big jacket. I also wear ariat winter paddock boots and I put regular half chaps over those. And of course, winter riding gloves. They keep my hands warm without being too bulky It's still in the low 30's here so I usually have take of the top jacket or I start to sweat... It's actually mostly been the wind that's bad, but it's been calm the last few days.

    When it get really cold I have coveralls, which I can and will ride in.

    I wear jeans and windpants over that. Normally I don't get cold feet but I can't wear my warm boots so now I'm trying to find decent but not too expensive riding boots. I ride western. I also sweat under too much crap. If I'm out feeding I wear a shirt, sweatshirt, and coveralls. The only thing that gets cold is my hands.
    I end up taking my jacket off because I get too hot.

    ^^ ya it has been pretty warm right now !

    I wear just jeans or jeans with under armour underneath. On top I wear a long sleeve shirt, hoodie, and a coat. Then I take the coat off to ride. I usually don't ride in gloves unless its REALLY cold because I hate them !
