    Mountain Horse Active Winter Rider Boot is rated 4.1923 out of 5 by 52.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots for winter I live in Montana and ride outdoors or in a nonheated indoor arena all winter. I've used the MH Ice Riders, and these are much warmer for me, plus the Ice Rider zippers broke after one season. I am hoping these zippers last longer since they aren't at the back. They are very tall, a little too tall for me, but they are so soft on top, that the little bit of extra just folds over and doesn't bother me at all. From the first ride, these were comfortable. I'm usually about a 7 1/2 and I got the 7s and they fit well in the foot with wool socks. I have an average calf - not super wide, but definitely not narrow, and these fit me well. The foot looks bulky, but I didn't notice too much in the stirrup. My summer schooling boots are also MH, so maybe I'm just used to a bulkier foot. So far these are the best winter riding boots I've tried.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Waiting to see. Bought the model below the active riders last year, the zipper broke, the boot leaked, and I was pretty disappointed. So far I am liking this model, and the zipper is positioned differently so I feel it will last. So far no leaking has happened. I am so far happy I have these boots for this winter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond Excellent! I bought these boots to keep my feet warm during the cold months and they work GREAT!! The fit is awesome they are so comfortable! I even where them when I am playing in the snow or getting the mail! They did have a little more tred on the sole than I was expecting so they got caught in my stirrup when I tried to dismount for the first time in them resulting in a moment of funny Embarrassment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just wish they were shorter! I really loved the way these boots fit in the foot and the leg, with the exception that they were way too tall so I had to send them back:( It is difficult finding boots that fit and are short enough. At 5'1" and a size 6.5. I wish they made them in a short height.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Winter Riding Boots Wow...never did I think that these would make sure a difference in my riding. I am very happy with this purchase.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Warm....but... This boot is made very well. I have worn for several hours and my feet were warm and dry. My only complaint is the stiffness of the shoe part. The area around the ankle, where the shaft meets the shoe is very stiff. I have been working the boot in an effort to soften, I hope it does because other than that, it's a great book.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant boots I was skeptical at them keeping my feet warm as nothing ever does when I'm riding in the winter. This rock! I am very pleased with them and would recommend them to anyone that wants to continue to ride in cold weather.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice but killing my ankle Agree with another poster, when in doubt go smaller. Keep my feet warm, but KILLING my right ankle. Trying the idea of putting a clamp on the inside of it overnight to encourage it to bend in a different place. Will see today if it works. They are taller then my older Mountain Horse boots ( measurement is given in the info for boot). Fits in sturrup fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Winter Riding Boots! These boots are everything I hoped they would be. I needed winter boots for training and riding horses, as well as teaching riding lessons. These boots are very warm even though I get cold feet easily. I wore them for 10 hours straight in 27 degrees and they were fantastic. As long as you keep moving you will stay very warm. A+ for fit and comfort. The only complaint I have is that the zipper is difficult to zip up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Winter Boots These are simply excellent winter riding boots. They are comfortable right out of the box and break in very quickly. For winter riding they cannot be beat. I have notoriously cold toes when I ride - before these I had tried numerous other boots and socks trying to prevent the terrible cold and numbness I felt when I rode in the winter. Then I found these. I can now use my regular summer socks and even after 3 hours in the saddle/walking around the barn, my toes are still warm and oh-so-happy. I've also found them to be very breathable, as I've never had an issue of sweating in them and getting wet and clammy. Fit can be a little difficult, they either fit you or they don't, but if they do fit, you will not be disappointed. Highly, highly recommend the Mountain Horse Active Winter Rider boots.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unfortunate I bought these last december because I live in Western NY where it's super cold and mucky. I was a 10 in the Ice Riders so I ordered a 10 in these--I'm usually a 9. They are huge on my and even after almost a full year are still extremely stiff in the ankle. They're very warm but I can't walk without getting bruises on my heel and ankle areas. I would assume that getting a smaller size wouldn't help the stiffness much either.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anazing These boots kept ms soooo warm!! The zipper in back makes them eazy to get on and off. The boots definatly make riding in the winter a bit more bareable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the perfect choice I LOVE THESE BOOTS! They are warm... comfortable.... great for riding & barn chorse.Love the slim fit, outer materials and fur inside!I wear an 8, they seemed a little big in the foot - but not so much that an extra insole or thick sock won't fix.Higly reccomend these boots!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure jet I used to ride in the MH Ice Riders, which fell apart after only three seasons.Trying the Active Winter Riders now. They are very wide in the calf for me. Wish they'd come in Narrow. However, the part where the leg meets the foot, is very narrow. The zipper isn't helping, since it runs to the side in that area. I think people with a high arch will have a real problem.They are stiff right now and are rubbing in the heel area when I am walking in them.Not sure about the warmth. I think the Ice Riders kept my feet warmer, and it's not even that cold jet. (30s)They certainly look good, not sure about the quality jet, but maybe they'll surprise me....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect winter riding boot! Living in Michigan means extremely cold winters and lots of snow. These boots are perfect for the conditions. They are EXTREMELY comfortable, very warm, and fit perfectly. I generally have to get wide calf boots, but these boots have enough elastic to keep me in a regular calf. Plus, the elastic is great quality and retains its elasticity rather than just stretching out. Well worth the price!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for what it is I bought these because I always have numb feet when the temp drops below 50 degrees. I was hoping to find a warm pair of boots to keep my feet cozy this winter while I am on the ground and in the saddle. The boots are well made. Mountain horse did a good job with the quality. I am not wild about the synthetic upper, but I am not wild about almost every synthetic. It is functional. It keeps my feet warm. The boots were very stiff and the first few rides were comical. The sole was stiff and I found it hard to keep my heels down. They stayed waterproof and the have done their job, but fashion and function do not meld here.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deal/comfort for winter boot I ordered a size 8, (I wear size 7 1/2) and they seemed a bit big. So before I returned them I ordered a size 7. Size 7 fits perfectly...so order down a size rather than up a size, unless you wear very, very thick socks. They are comfortable from the time you put them on and are warm. I just finished a clinic this week, terrible weather, low 30's, windy, damp and snow, decided to try the new boots out, my feet were warm (and I ride in thin socks) and I didn't even notice that I had new boots on. I would definitely recommend them.
