Thermal riding boots are essential for winter riding. In our collection we have a wide range of winter riding boots for men & women that will keep your feet warm and dry even in the coldest of weather.
Don't let the wrong boots get in the way of your winter riding experience. Light, unlined leather riding boots or Jodhpur boots are perfect for summer, but offer little protection in winter when the ground is cold and wet.
Thermal riding boots, on the other hand, offer all the features of a normal riding boot and also keep your feet warm and dry. They also protect your feet when working in the stable, keeping you pleasantly warm even on the coldest of days.
Choose the perfect winter riding boots from Horze's comprehensive collection. From smart leather riding boots with warm sheepskin lining, to thermal riding boots with glitter accents, we have something for everyone. Once you've ridden in lined riding boots, you will never want to go without on your winter rides.
When riding in winter, you want to be able to give fine aids but still keep your feet warm. Insulation is the most important feature of winter riding boots, but the inner lining or upper material should not be too thick.
As winter often brings mud and snow, winter riding boots should also be water-repellent or waterproof to keep your feet dry.
You can find winter riding boots in countless variations. Choose from boots with a faux fur trim, boots with Velcro or lace-up fastenings or those made of leather with a warm sheepskin lining. There are boots to suit all tastes, budgets and requirements.
In winter you will quickly get cold feet in leather boots. Winter riding boots may be too bulky for you and offer too little contact with the horse's body. In that case you can switch to winter riding boots together with chaps. Chaps are not as warm as lined boots, but they offer better contact with the horse's body. This should be a good trade-off, as your legs usually don't get as cold as your feet while riding.
Winter riding boots are available in a wide range of materials. If you choose a model made of synthetic leather or plastic, you can also wear these shoes for stable work without any problems. Without the chaps, they are also suitable for country walks with your horse, your dog, or even on your own.
In normal leather or rubber boots, the feet quickly freeze in winter. This spoils the fun of riding and is also harmful to health in the long run. Winter riding boots, which are often also called thermal riding boots, provide a solution. They are made of synthetic material or leather and have a warming inner layer of wool, fleece or sheepskin. This warm lining naturally makes the boots tighter, so you usually have to order one size larger when buying winter riding boots.
Most styles also have a non-slip, treaded sole that allows you to move around safely even on ice and snow. As a rule, these boots are also waterproof or at least water-repellent. They are not only suitable for riding in winter, but also for stable work or dog walking.
