Thumbs up Best Tall Winter Riding Boot?

Many of us are looking for new boots for this winter! So, for those of you who already have winter boots you love, tell us about them! What brand are they? What do you like about them? How have they held up? How is the sizing?

Links, pictures, etc would also be awesome, but not necissary

I have been wondering the same thing!

I wanted to get some Mountain Horse, but lots of the reviews say the calf is a little big, and I already have a small calf. :/

Me too! My calves are tiny, and I really want something that I can feel my horse with, so a big bulky boot is not my preference. Although, I do want warmth. And waterproof is a must for me. I also heard some rub your saddle too much, some have problem with the zippers, etc. It makes the decision super hard!

So fellow riders- We really need to know! What's working for you?!

Honestly, my current boots are the best I've ever owned!!! They're the Ariat Bromont H20s: Country Supplies | Ariat English Footwear - Bromont Tall H20 Insulated Field Boot - Ladies | Ariat Apparel
They look gorgeous, are incredibly comfy and keep my toesies warm!! On the pricey side though, but a great investment!

I have the Mountain Horse ones with the black fleece lining. They were around $150. The zipper is up the outside instead the back of the leg. It seems to reduce the stress on it. Hopefully it will last many seasons. Last winter was hell and they were fantastic. Yes, the calf is a bit large, but them you're also tucking fleece lined riding pants into them so it sort of offsets. I do ride with a 1/2" bigger stirrup in winter since winter boots are fatter all the way around.

I am not sure if I would need insulated boots. In central NH it get C O L D in the winter.

What do the tall boots do for you ? Other than the look and style ? Not being smart, I honestly am just wondering, I generally ride in Ariat endurance, or Justin water proof lacers in either and endurance or Aussi saddle.

I've been scouring ebay for a pair of mountain horse ones. The quilted looking ones with the white fleece coming out the top.
I hope some more people will reply for a recommendation!
EDIT: They're called stella polaris.

I have the Mountain Horse Ice High Rider 2.

They are pretty big & clunky (nowhere near like the Rimfrost ones though, kiddo has those and let me tell you those things are Herman Munster clunky!!) but very warm.

Calves are large (as with all the Mountain Horse boots I've found). In order to fit, I have to wear thick winter breeches and ridiculously thick mountaineering wool socks that weigh like a pound!
