Riding In Noble Muck Boots?

I was wondering-

Do you think I would be able to ride english and/or western in these? Jump?

can't speak to the jumping but if I rode in those I would put cages on my stirrups. They won't slip out of the stirrups easily.

I'm thinking of riding in my snow boots which have a similar tread. But I might start riding bareback this winter, it's warmer.

I don't think they'd have much flexibility around the ankle which is the first thing I look for in a riding boot. Impossible to keep your heels down in those, and if you do manage to push them down, they're quickly going to develop cracks around the ankles.

I ride in Muck brand boots in the winter. Only if I have my caged endurance stirrups which are wider or bareback though.

I tried in mine and hated it. They were too stiff to ride properly with stirrups, and even bareback they were so thick that I could barely feel my horse's sides.

I tried because someone had told me that she did it sometimes. I don't know how she did that, honestly.

ETA: Also, I bought two pairs of these last year. The first pair was great, but the second pair was terribly stiff, even for walking, and rubbed my ankles and heel badly. I would buy again (they really are great muck boots and definitely waterproof), but I'd try them on in the store first if possible, or be prepared to return them.

Just personal opinion but I really dislike the idea of using a boot like that for stirrup use.

Probably cheaper, and definitely safer to find some good winter socks that you can wear with your normal riding boots instead.

Absolutely not unless you buy 'cages' to reduce the risk of getting your feet stuck in the stirrups.
I bought a pair two years ago, just for barn/outdoor work and they were leaking by the time the next winter came around.

Look for something that's got a smooth sole if you want to ride in them

The 'real' Muck Boot's Arctic Adventure range have smoother soles and are less bulky

Just winging it is not a plan
