    Yes i'm in PA. Yes like the dentist would use. You can get them at Target, Walmart, pharmacies. They are not hard to find. I never go a winter with out a supply. But like I said I only use them when I ride. You're skin can't really breathe with the latex and glove over top. But it does wonders when your'e on a horse and your hands are exposed to the wind.

    This will be my first year riding in the winter so I was going to get a riding jacket. The winter one I usually wear is a Army winter coat, so its to constricting.

    I need to buy Under Armour. Thankfully, there happens to be a coupon in some of the free stuff my college gives out during orientation week for 20% Under Armour.

    I am so bulked up in the winter, it's pathetic. Last year, I think I only rode once or twice because Abby used to be a nutcase and I didn't really know how to ride her yet (I was used to riding horses that you literally have to pull and kick to move, not one that will turn in a circle with a bit of leg pressure).

    North Dakota gets ridiculously cold in the 6 months we have of winter. I also have Raynaud's which constricts blood flow to my hands, feet, ears, and nose, so I have to wear a normal pair of thin socks plus thick wool ones in my boots, my fancy mittens I got for Christmas last year (they're basically a pair of gloves inside mittens. The only things that have ever kept my hands warm), and a hat.

    I lose blood flow from the balls of my feet to my toes and I hate riding when I can't feel my feet. My hands rarely lose blood flow, but they get unbearably painful. Last year, I couldn't open a gate with my giant mittens on, so I took them off and by the time I got the gate open, my hands hurt so badly I was crying.

    I have new medication for it that helps more, but I basically look like a poufball on my horse.

    Shame on you for mentioning winter in August!!! Lol
    It really depends on what type of riding you will be doing. You wouldnt have to dress quite as warm for a half hour in the ring as you would for 3 hours on the trail.
    Layers are key.
    But I am really not mentally prepared to talk about this yet.
    Ask me again in november.

    UNDER ARMOUR!!!!! Haha!
    It's great stuff. I get really cold tho, I look like ralphy, (from Christmas story lol) I work outside too then play with my fuzzies outside, so I'm usually freezing. I wear insulated boots & gloves & hats. Cabela's does have alot of selection, along with Army & Navy :) Oh & I'd be lost without my insulated overalls & coat haha.
