I have these and love them: Brossard Tall Winter Boot. They are super warm and comfortable enough to work a full day around the barn.

If you find you don't like riding in the Muck Boots, I'd highly recommend looking for these.
Agree, impossible to ride in unless bareback

I use those little hand warmer packets, too. Can't go wrong, the ones I have last for like six hours <3

Instead of gloves, switch to wool mitts. I use the hunter mitts whereby I can expose my fingers if needed while the rest of the mitt covers my hand. Fingers curled up together stay warmer than when in gloves. Wool is still your best bet. This is from someone who does chores in -30 weather.

I bought these ones a few winters ago, great to ride in, great for keeping your feet warm while outside during -40C, no cold tootsies!

Since I have worn Muck boots I have never had my feet cold again!!!

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

I had mountain horse paddock boots in winter that were extremely warm. I'm sure their tall boots are just as warm!

Thank you everyone!! Yes I'm betting I'll need a second pair of boots for riding. I am definitely looking at those Mountain Horse rimfrost riders. The paddock boots I have now have ZERO insulation. How would you all say the Mountain Horse boots hold up? I'm just hoping to get 2 winters out of them for the money.

I use the Ariat Bromont tall insulated boot. The foot is waterproof and it is fully insulated. It is easy to ride in, as well. IMO, If it is too cold to ride in this boot, it is probably too cold for the horse to be ridden.

The only complaint, is that it doesn't come in the Ariat tall sizes. So, it is a tad short.

Another suggestion - look for boots that have a rubber foot and sole. Rubber is warmer than the thermoplastic. I like the ladies' Sorrels with the felt liners. My preference is to wear them without socks, not even a thin nylon sock. The men's boots are bulky. Sorrels have a rubber foot. Maybe that's Sorels. Hmmm.
