    ^^ Good luck finding something really warm. You need it!

    P.S. I'd look into something with thinsulate (I believe that's how it's called). It keeps to keep heat in.

    I love my ariats. They are warm and look good enough to show or hunt in.

    Are you planning on also riding in them? I find it easier to just switch in and out of my dress boots, otherwise my feet get sweaty...

    I do plan on riding in them. Our barn has an indoor arena so I might also end up simply wearing my regular half chaps and paddock boots, but would prefer winter rising boots that I can wear outside in snow and for riding.

    Those look great! I didn't know there was a winter version of the ariats. Thanks for the great suggestion.

    As with all boots it's hit or miss. I had 2 pairs of Ariat, and both fell apart after couple rides. With MT Horse I have their short winter boots, tall winter boots, and dressage leather tall boots, and all are very comfy and so far been going strong (knock on wood). I actually have heard not so nice words about Dublins and how long they last (but I never had a pair so can't really judge or share the experience).

    Would you believe I wear leather boots and we get -30 in winter. Boots need to be made of a material that allows foot moisture to escape. When my welder hubby worked outdoors in the winter, he set his unlined leather workboots outside to freeze. His feet were warm all day. His socks were lightweight wool blend work socks.

    I have the Horze Rovigo Tall Boots. They have a fleece lining and are super comfortable and warm! Good price and free shipping :) Can't beat that

    Thank you so much for your suggestion. I've continued to do some research and going to go buy a pair of the ones you life, as you suggested. Below is my work entire every day I go in, so I need to go with a dress boot.
