Winter is Approaching.. Apparel??

Yes it may seem bizarre but it's nearing winter here in NZ. I want to get some winter riding gear even though I haven't started lessons yet. But I want to be prepared!

I tried looking back at previous threads but I didn't mind solid answers.

1. Best winter riding tall boot that isn't stiff in the ankle
2. Best winter riding breeches that aren't going to cost me more than a saddle
3. Best winter riding gloves (not crazy thick please)
4. Good winter coat (I have no coats.. just hoodies.)

And anything else you'd like to add. Oh I'm size 10 and apparently my calves are only 14.5"

Thanks :)

The mountain horse brand of winter boots seem popular, They are stiff though. MY GF likes the Mountain horse winter paddock boots. Maybe those with half chaps? For coats don't look at riding places. You'll spend tripple the money for froo froo fashion looks that arnt war, Look at hunting, or outdoor work clothing. Preferable something waterproof. I shop alot at cabelas not sure what you have there.
For gloves same thing. Find a building supply type store and look at the mechanics style work gloves. They come in thin and lightly insulated.

I love my Dublin River boots. They're warm enough for our CT winters with good socks (25-35F during the day), and are super soft and comfy!

1. Best winter riding tall boot that isn't stiff in the ankle

I ride in Active Winter Rider Footwear Mountain Horse and have loved them since day one. Going on two years now and I haven't had one problem with them.

2. Best winter riding breeches that aren't going to cost me more than a saddle

Check out Just For Horsin' Round Riding Tights I don't know if she can/will ship to NZ but it can't hurt to look into it - her tights are VERY cost effective and super comfy.
I also ride in Ariat Ladies PowerStretch Full Seat Riding Tights (Winter 2009 Colors) and Winter Full Seat Riding Breeches | EQUESTRIAN COLLECTIONS.COM

3. Best winter riding gloves (not crazy thick please)

Tbh, I ride in my normal SSG gloves all year round as I find my hands stay warm while riding and I don't like losing feeling with thicker gloves. However, I have seen a lot of new winter gloves without a lot of bulk so maybe they're better now.

4. Good winter coat (I have no coats.. just hoodies.)

I ride in fleece pullovers and vests so i'm not sure I can be of help here. I like layers so I can adjust my temperature as my ride goes on or the weather changes.

I really like my Ariat Bromont tall boots, they are a waterproof, insulated leather field boot. Ariat has a wide range of widths and heights to choose from as well.
Ariat International

I like SSG winter gloves. A nice, not too thick but still warm style is the "10 Below" model.

I like Mountain Horse or Ariat winter coats.
