Best Winter Riding Gloves?

Do any of you have recommendations for some nice warm but flexible gloves? I was looking through dover's huge selection and I am stumped. I am really particular about how flexible and bendy they are. Its quite difficult to tell from online. I live in the mountains of virginia, so it can get quite cold here but nothing crazy. Normally I would just go to a tack store and try some on, but the only store around here is tractor supply (which happens to carry only huge farmer hand sizes )
What do you guys wear?
It would be great if they are on the cheaper side, but if I can be assured that they are fantastic I wouldn't mind spending more.

I've never really felt the need for gloves (I am pretty much alone on this one xD) But I do have a pair of Roeckls, and I really like them. Not very wintery though, I suppose... x.x

I went to go buy gloves two weeks ago, I don't need winter gloves. But I saw the mountain horse ones, they looked amazingly warm.

Honestly, the best winter riding gloves have been cross country ski gloves. Warmest and easiest to ride with and do up tack, etc. Very pricey though, $50 for a good pair. I have tried ones specifically for winter riding, paid a bit less, around $25, no comparison, the ski gloves were warmer and more easier to do stuff with.

You're definitely not the only one. Around here I feel like the minority because I ride with gloves regularly. I have friends that will complain for ages about cold hands, but refuse to touch a pair of gloves.

I'm curious to see what everyone has to say. I have a pair of SSG winter riding gloves, and they're decent as far as warmth goes. However, they're really bulky so I wouldn't recommend them.

These:

I also have a pair of Kerrits winter gloves, and I'm still trying to decide how I feel about them:

I have some no name thinsulate leather gloves and they are great.
I love the leather as they are grippy while still being flexible. I wear them with BoT glove liners and they are toasty!
Make sure you order a size or so up so your hands have room, and room for a liner. Mine have an adjustable Velcro strap so even though they are big, they don't come off. They are good for chores, handling horses and riding outside.

I've never found a pair of winter riding gloves I liked so I just use a pair of knit gloves over a normal pair of gloves that are a size too big and that works great!

I have a pair of SSG riding gloves that I like- for riding and for working around the barn.
