    The Elements are slightly smaller than the other models but run true to size, IMO. So I order my normal size Elements but size down in other models. The Toasties run much bigger and are almost as...

    I love them, too! They're pretty much impossible to kill. The tights, anyway--I haven't tried any of their breeches yet. I do find they run a little big and long. And the regular rise is really...

    Here's the reasoning. When your cattle-checking options are horse or ATV and there's already a pretty wicked wind, horseback is a LOT warmer than the ATV adding to the wind chill. Plus you can get...

    I wear mine over breeches all the time. Just not the full seat ones. They're also quite comfortable over yoga pants.

    When I moved out here I lost about 40 pounds and was worried about having to...

    They are quite fun......for now. Ask me again in March.



    Depends on the wind for me. Once the wind chill gets below -10F I start to question my sanity. It's actually not that bad riding...

    I have 2 quarter sheets, one polar fleece and one wool. If I'm only using one I tend to go for the fleece because it's warmer. The wool one is prettier and I made it bigger than the fleece to go on...

    I have some cheap fringed Barnstable full chaps that I got 8 or 9 years ago for $50. I would die without them in the winter (outside in SD, no indoor, already stoopid cold). They have never fit...

    Both the TBs I've had the pleasure to own were free, not a thing wrong with them but zero off-track schooling. Both good-tempered, well-mannered, easy to ride geldings. The first was well on his...

    Size up and then you can stick those warming packets in along with your thick socks. MH boots run a little large but not crazy large.

    Smartpak's Thinsulate turnouts are great, and kind of in between a lightweight and a medium. Mine's on winter #6. I've used it on unclipped horses on 40ish degree days without an issue.

    I've used both successfully, but I prefer TC. I can't reliably get TC in my area, so my TB's on a mix of Purina Senior and Ultium. I do appreciate how quickly the Purina absorbs water--it makes a...

    Tropical Rider or Kerrits. Even their low rises aren't very low. If you want more of a breech, Horze active (solid colors, not checked) have a very high rise and are quite comfortable.
