I am living in Ottawa, Ontario for a year and the winters here are extreme. I've been told it gets down to -35 some days, but more regularly about -15. I have a lease of a (beautiful lovely) horse at the only stable I can access on public transport and there is no indoor arena so I am going to be braving it! I need to get properly kitted out. I am thinking of buying the Bogs equine boots since they can double as wellies and I don't have them either yet (coming over from the UK I didn't bring much riding kit, and anyway its all so ancient it needs replacing). I was wondering if anyone has tried the Bogs equine boots and if anyone has any other specific pieces of equipment I should get for riding in the winter. I will only be in this climate for one year so I like the idea of equipment that can multitask.
Thanks in advance for your help.
