Winter trail apparel

What do you wear on the trail in cold weather? Just curious. I usually just throw on a jacket and blue jeans but it tends to get chilly when it's 20 degrees lol!

I would be a human Popsicle without my carharrt That's over my layers of socks, jeans and probably two shirts (A insulated tank top and a sweater over it), and my hat. Never leave without my hat!

Indie just looks at me like "Pft, what a weeny."

With all of that apparel on, can you actually mount your horse or does a crane drop you down onto him\her...meant as a joke of course.

Well, that is where my wonderfully short horses comes into play. Now if I owned or rode anything over a cute 15 hands, I'd be in some trouble. Bahahahaha.

We do almost the same. Instead of coveralls, we use bibs and a jacket.

Chinks or Chaps, a good coat, wool vest under the coat, Bandana around neck and hat.

Of course stop and eat some food to keep some calories in your system


Of course my daughters and their friends just laugh at the cold


But you can't tell kids anything

I do not like bulky clothing but I don't like to be cold either! When it does get cold here it is often a wet, humid, bone chilling cold. I wear CuddlDuds next to my skin. They are thin but warm. I generally wear a long sleeve teeshirt over it and a plaid flannel shirt that is lined. If it real cold or windy I wear a jacket. I wear jeans and a pair of socks...not thick because they make my feet uncomfortable.

I wear a helmet and a scarf and gloves. Nothing too heavy as I can't stand the Michelin Man feeling.

I wear long underwear, a winter helmet cover which wraps around my neck like a scarf, flannel lined jeans, a turtleneck, a wool sweater and a jacket, two pairs of socks the outer pair wool, fleece lined boots, sometimes toe warmers on top of the socks inside the boots and gloves. I'm usually pretty warm but the toes can still get a bit cold in 15 degree weather. But, it is so beautiful outside riding in the winter! It's worth it!

We ALWAYS have wind at our barn. It is on top of a hill, and the wind here in the winter is brutal. WE typically wear ski pants and jackets, just because they are easily washed.....remember, my hubby is allergic and I have to strip outside....yes-outside.....

I also wear Wintersilks long underwear-really warm and thin. No bulk at all. Stirrup ones under my jeans, then the ski pants if it is cold. On top-the Wintersilks shirt, then an Underarmour Cold gear shirt-LOVE these. A fleece if is is REALLY cold, and my ski jacket-neck warmer, ear warmer, gloves and toe warmers in the boots with wool socks. With all these layers I have great flexibility if I am too warm or cold.....can always add/subtract layers. Plus, I only have to take off some when I get home, so I am not outside half naked. Lol
