Best winter riding boots

I will be looking at spending a good amount of money on riding/winter boots for both the barn and outside at work. What are the best ones you recommend?

I have Mountain Horse Active Winter Rider boots and I LOVE them, they keep my toes warm even on the coldest days Illinois can throw at me :) The zipper twists around the heel so sometimes it's a little bit stubborn, but it works. I was actually sad when it got warmer out because they're so comfortable.

I have Dubarry knockoffs (Dublin boots), and if you put Welly socks in them they are very warm.
I teach all winter long in an unheated arena and I have Raynauds. The biggest trick to warm feet is keeping them dry! For the really cold days I will put boot warmers in my boots too.

Not a huge fan of Mountain Horse - I find they don't last very well and are not very waterproof. My Dublins lasted 7 months of continual wear, and I've just now scrubbed clean and re-waterproofed them.

It's just their normal boots - but with welly socks I find them way warmer than anything else I've tried.

I know Dubarry makes winter ones, but for $800, no thanks I will take my knockoffs!!

For Canada?

I LOVE Mt Horse though. I have a lighter version of their winter boots, however I've seen really warm ones (I believe even with the fur).

I wear my Mt Horse for 3 winters (Nov - Mar) already... Still look like new (OK, OK, somewhat dirty of course).

I had to look up the style of boot you mentioned. The only problem is the boot has to be black.

I'm glad you posted that, because that probably would have made a difference to let everyone we get true winters out here

Something else I should have mentioned, that I don't normally advertise, is I am a funeral director which is why I need good winter boots. 40% of our service involve us going to a cemetery and spending 30 mins- 1 hour at a time outside. That's why I know I can trust my fellow horse owners to give me suggestions of good winter boots(that I will also use outside when I go see and ride the horses).
