Thinsulate riding gloves are the best, and when it gets really cold add a pair of SmartWool liners

My mountain horse boots suck :(
The ankles are cracked, the zipper doesn't do up unless you put a gross layer of WD 40 on, and they leak. I have to wear them though because I can't afford new ones :(

Which Mountain Horse boots do ya'll have? I'm looking at Dover and they have

Ladies' Mountain Horse Rimfrost Rider II Tall Winter Boot - Dover Saddlery.

and

Mountain Horse Ice Rider Tall Winter Boot - Dover Saddlery.

I want to get the best for my money.

I actually had been leaning towards these boots, but now they don't have them in brown or in my size.

I don't ride english so the tall boots are a waste on me. Don't laugh but I ride in a pair of UGG's. I found some that are a leather top and have a good heel Brookfield Boot by UGG® ? Women?s Leather Suede Sheepskin Boots ? Stylish Waterproof Leather Boots with Interchangeable Insoles - Genuine Twin-Faced Sheepskin Boots ? UGG® Australia
They are comfy and toasty warm. For gloves, I bought a pair of $40 gloves that are suppose to be waterproof, warm and able to work easy in. My fingers froze! I dug out my old leather Wells Lamont with thermal lining, semi cheaps that I get at the feed store. They are the ones that keep my hands warm.

Hey all.
I bought a pair of Ariat insulated riding boots this winter, and altho they were spendy. I absolutely love love love them.
I tried to find a pic and could not. I know the feed store (where I purchased them) said they cannot get anymore of them until April.
Anyhow. A few weeks after I got them we started to have very very cold temps. These boots are so awesome. They keep my feet warm and dry, and are very flexable. When the snow came (all at once 2 ft) These boots were wonderful to wear!
I ride in them and also use them to be out and about in if it is freezing and snowing.
The only thing I have to say is they do not have that much traction on the soles. But they are really for riding and not walking around in.
Wonderful boots. I hope they will last.
Ankles are very supple!

Finally got my MacWet Climateqs and the first time I wore them (was about in the 20s F), I kept thinking - maybe it isn't that cold - until I took the gloves off and quickly put them back on. Plus, they're made to get wet, so I can wear them while filling water buckets and for riding. :) Yippee!

I really like that they are warm, but not at all bulky and still leave me full use of my hands.
