Layers. I usually ride out with long johns under winter breeches and several long-sleeved shirts. As for footwear, look into Mountain Horse boots. I have a pair of their Rimfrost Rider IIs for sale in size 8 and they kept my feet really warm in the winter before I outgrew them.

I usually ride in long jons un jeans and like ahahaha four socks! With a long sleeve shirt with a sweater and a jacket! I like being toasty warm <3 And nice warm riding gloves...nice cheap ones at any tack store or even TSC And my head gets pretty cold so i'm going to get one of those helmet scarf like things.. sorry I don't remember off the top of my head what it is called, I will send you it later ;)

Winter riding is not about looking pretty, but staying warm. There are days I go to the barn looking like a football. I can barely move, but somehow manage to get on a horse. My best tip is I put a pair of latex gloves under my winter riding gloves. My hands stay toasty warm.

Just want to thank everyone for information how to keep warm for winter trail riding. Keeping in mind that being warm when riding is a must, not a fashion. Thanks very the help!!!:)

I have some fleece-lined black boot cut breeches, and they are SO warm! They're from 'irideon riding wear' and they're as comfy as yoga pants, super warm in the winter, and they have suede knee patches so they grip! Plus they don't look ridiculous because they're boot cut (I ride Western!)

Personally, I'm not a big fan of layers. I have a pair of thermal tights and use the thickest shirt I have. If it's really cold I wear my good winter coat. I also have a pair of winter boots and always wear gloves.

My cousin takes those packs that heat up when you scrunch them enough and puts them in her boots.

I wear tall insulated boots to keep my feet and lower legs warm. And when I'm riding, if it's cold enough, I use a Velcro quarter sheet to keep my thighs and butt warm, as well as my horses butt!
