Are your feet always cold in the winter? Few things are more miserable than having wet cold feet at the barn. We’ve taken the time to round up our favorite riding boots for winter so your feet can stay warm and dry all winter long. Whether you’re looking for muck boots, tall boots, or paddock boots, we’ve got what you’re looking for. Keep reading to find out what the best riding boots for winter are.
Tall Riding Boots for Winter
Our first tall winter riding boot on the list is the Arctic Fleece-Lined Winter Riding Boots. These boots feature a warm fleece lining and are made of a waterproof leather, so your feet will stay warm and dry all winter long. Plus, these boots offer the convenience of a secure side zipper and snap closure. If you don’t like the back zipper that is standard on most tall boots, these are the best winter riding boots for you. Last but not least, the rubber sole and memory foam insole make it easy to spend a long day on your feet.
Next, the Tundra Fleece-Lined Tall Boots offer a winter riding boot option with added neoprene panels for additional comfort. The front neoprene panels add flexibility to the ankle area of the boot so you can stay comfortable all day long, whether you’re on your feet or in the saddle. Strategically-placed calf panels add durability and endurance, as well as extra protection from rubs. Finally, a rubber outsole protects the foot of the boots to increase their longevity.
Last in our tall winter riding boots category, we have the Alpine Quilted Field Boots. These boots are made out of fully synthetic materials which make them easy to clean and care for. Quilted neoprene on the leg portion of the boot gives them a unique and stylish appearance. Plus, the neoprene has the added benefit of making them warmer, too! These boots are just as convenient to get on and off as our other riding boots for winter thanks to their back zipper and hook and loop closure. You cannot beat their economical price, but act fast– these boots will not be in stock forever.
Best Paddock Riding Boots for Winter
If you typically ride in paddock boots and half chaps, an easy way to upgrade your setup for winter is to get a new pair of winter paddock boots. On Breeches.com, we have a few different options when it comes to short winter riding boots.
The Horze Camden Winter Riding Boots are paddock boots made out of real high-quality leather. With a 100 percent wool lining, your feet get all the benefits of wool: breathability, moisture-wicking, and warmth. If you ride in spurs, these are the winter riding boots for you. The rubber spur rest ensures your spurs won’t slip no matter the weather. Plus, the ribbed elastic sides add flexibility and comfort, as well as shortens the break-in time.
Second on our list of best winter paddock boots is the Horze Stockholm Winter Riding Boots. These paddock boots feature elastic shoelaces and an elastic side panel which allows the wearer to customize the fit and provides all-day comfort. Made from high-quality leather, these winter paddock boots are soft and flexible from the get-go, which means a shorter break-in time and enhanced comfort. A double zipper adds unique style to these boots. Designed for life in the saddle, these paddock boots are warm and functional thanks to their 100 percent wool lining.
Economical Riding Boots for Winter
If you’re an equestrian on a budget, check out the TuffRider Starter Fleece-Lined Paddock Boots. The winter version of our traditional Starter Paddock Boots, these winter riding boots are not only economical, but easy to care for too. Made out of synthetic leather, these boots can be easily cleaned with the swipe of a damp cloth. The fleece-lined interior is sure to keep your feet warm through every winter ride and the rubber outsole is water resistant.
Designed for added warmth, but without the bulk, these paddock boots are comfortable whether you’re in the saddle or working in the barn.
Best Winter Muck Boots
If you spend your winter wading through mud and snow and cleaning stalls, a good pair of winter muck boots is almost priceless.
The Mudruckers Waterproof Tall boots are 100 percent waterproof, so you won’t have to worry about your feet getting wet. While they are designed for all-season wear, the rubber and neoprene construction of these boots will still keep your feet much warmer than other thinner muck boots. Durable but flexible, these lightweight boots are stain-resistant and feature a removable EVA sock liner. The 100 percent breathable Comfort-Flo lining is an innovative invention that eliminates the sweat and heat of other rubber boots. After all, nothing’s worse in winter than taking sweaty feet out of your boots and into the cold air!
The Weatherbeeta Dublin Danman Boots are another excellent choice, particularly if you want to look stylish while you’re mucking stalls or grooming your horse. Made out of full grain leather, this boot is breathable and comfortable for all day wear. The full elastic rear gusset and adjustable back laces make it easy to customize the fit of the boot to accommodate most calf sizes. Plus, the waterproof booty lining and Positive Traction Grip outsole ensure that these boots are tough enough for barn life.
Best Riding Boots for Winter: Around the Barn
Last but not least, the Horze Chamonix Winter Paddock Boots get their own category. These unique winter riding boots are an interesting mix between great boots for the saddle and for around the barn. With a sturdy, durable leather construction, these boots are fur-lined for added warmth. The secure front laces allow you to customize the fit. Pushing wheelbarrows in icy conditions won’t be a problem as the super grip sole allows you to walk easily on slippery and muddy ground. The water-resistant leather keeps your feet dry, but it’s still breathable so you can avoid overheated and sweaty feet.
