When it gets real cold I wear Schnee Snow Paks. I have poor circulation and even in the summer time my feet will be ice cold(ask my husband at bedtime LOL!) Any how they are the only boots I have found to keep my feet warm in the cold. Unfortunately they have many drawbacks, they are heavy, have a vibram lug sole and oversized. You will dang sure get a workout if you have to use a lot of leg while riding.
You can buy oversized/overshoe stirrups for riding in winter boots but my stirrups are huge anyhow so I don't worry too much about and I don't shove them all the way in.
I have also tried a roomier regular boot with a couple pairs of wool socks and those pocket warmers stuffed in them, also making sure the boot isn't too tight. (If you cram too many socks into a boot without a little room you mind as well not even bother.) I do ok with that down to 20*F...below that I have to wear my Paks.
If I could find something better for the cold, I would dang sure buy them!
Oh I forgot to ad, Whites makes a Snow Pak for women that is narrower and somewhat made for riding. Instead of the big huge round toe they narrowed it up quite a bit and has a cute fur top. But if I remember right, it still had a rubber lug sole.
