    Default Mountain Horse Cold Weather Paddock Boots - Your Experiences?

    As fall creeps in with winter not far behind, I am thinking of getting some insulated winter paddock boots. I have always stuck with my traditional Dehner paddock boots with toe warmers inside, but this year, as I am older and wiser(?), I am thinking of the insulated variety.

    I have found a place that has the Mountain Horse boots at a price I am willing to pay, so am wondering what you all can tell me about them? Trying to compare the Ice Paddock with the Rimfrost Paddock, it seems as though the Ice is more refined? True or not? Are they both easy enough to ride in or are they too bulky and get stuck in the stirrups easily? Any other information?

    I have the MH tall ice riders, I think (which ever one is more refined). They are very warm.

    I also just ordered the Ariat Bromont paddocks on sale at Dover for $100. I like them quite a lot, but haven't tested them in cold weather yet . . .

    I bought the same ones, couldn't resist the sale price. While it hasn't been cold enough to try them yet, I have been wearing Ariat Expedition paddocks for 7 winters, and they are awesome, which is why I bought another pair. Love that they are waterproof leather also.

    I paid less ($99) for the exact same boot at Dover.

    They are only $78.20 on TOTD. Great deal! I have these exact boots and they are very warm and waterproof.

    Oops, I misread my TOTD email, that's a great deal. I should return my Dover ones since they are unworn but i'm too lazy.
