We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)!

And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

The Tuff Rider Winter Riding Boots have a waterproof PVC upper and neoprene ankle flex that allows for greater comfort in the stirrup. The upper lining is a durable mesh with PU foam and tricot. The molded foot bed lining is multi-spandex with PU waterproof membrane.

    Tuff Rider Winter Riding Boot is rated 4.2143 out of 5 by 84.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots! I was so glad I got these! I was a bit worried after reading reviews that said they didn't fit well in various ways, but when I tried them on they fit great! I wore them for 7 hours straight and they were totally comfy and kept me warm all day. They look a bit clunky but I don't care, it's not about looking stylish anyway (usually!). Such a good value for the price, too. I would recommend them to anyone!Also: I saw in some of the reviews that people thought they were really hard to get on. I didn't have much trouble, no more than any other tall boots cause. I wore them with thick socks and jeans and had no trouble zipping them. My suggestion is if you can't zip them, get down on one knee and lean forward while you zip them. :)

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap riding boots I don't recommend these to anyone. I bought them brand new, and the flexible part at the front of the ankle started ripping within a month. The zippers have always been tough, so I made sure I lubricated the zippers after every wearing. Still, within six months, the zipper on one boot completely broke. They are worthless. To be fair, though, the Mountain Horse Ice Tall boots were about the same quality, with the zipper breaking within one season, and at least the Tuff Riders weren't as much money. I'm sticking to lace winter paddocks and half chaps from now on. No more plastic zippers breaking!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very worthwhile! I have been using these boots for a few weeks now and find them extremely comfortable and warm! So far so good. I do find the zipper tricky at times but i am sure that with time this will get easier. Very happy with my purchase!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Boot, Very Warm! I love my pair, I can actually feel my feet after I come back from the barn. Hard to get on the first time but broke in after first day. Very happy with my purchase! Great pair of barn/shooling boots for the price!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Value Reasonably priced, reliable winter boot! Really helps keep feet and toes warm. This year's version's zipper doesn't go as low as the previous version (several years ago) so is slightly harder to pull on over lots of socks....but not a "deal breaker" by any means.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Boots These boots seem really nice and very warm, but I cannot even get them to zip. I have pretty average calves (or so I thought) but the zipper doesn't come anywhere near zipping, and it's not because of the zipper either. The calves on these boots just seem very tiny, the foot fit fine though. I will be returning these for a pair of boots that come in wide calf sizes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super warm, pretty snug I am very happy with the warmth of these boots--it hasn't hit truly cold season here yet, but when I thought upper thirties were cold, the combination of these boots and fleece breeches almost had me sweating! Man are these warm! If it ever gets too cold to wear fleece and these boots, it's too cold to ride :PMy only complaint is that despite sizing up (I usually get a 39), the 40 is super snug in the foot. Regular thin socks are too much, but a boot sock allows the back of the ankle to rub. I am hoping the foot will stretch/flatten out a bit, or the back will soften up a bit with wear. Or maybe I will find a perfect sock...Even so, I would buy this boot again, they are easy to ride in, don't scuff my saddle, and keep me warm, if not a little smooshed.And lest I forget, they are unexpectedly flattering on my shorter calves!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Buy But Tight Fit I have not yet worn these winter boots but compared to others I've had they seem well made & sturdy. Nice & flexible at the ankle. I am disappointed in how tight they fit in the calf & I do not have large calves. I even measured prior to ordering because of other reviews. I am well within the size for an 8 but they are very tight & tricky to zip. I've worn them around the house to loosen them & that is helping a little bit. I may have to exchange them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grrrrip! Wanted a boot with warmth (got it!), but didn't expect how how secure and grippy they are in the stirrup. Even though they're seriously toasty, they're my Go To boot and it's warm outside! I reccomend to all my friends now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots These are excellent warm durable tall boots. I live in new England where it is often cool. My feet are warm and these boots are very flexible at the ankle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Winter Riding Boots I cannot believe how much I love these boots. (1) Warmth - My barn is at the Illinois-Wisconsin border, and it can be COLD, snowy, icy. I rode in 10-degree weather and my feet stayed warm, yet did not sweat. Nothing penetrated in all the times I trudged through snow to get my horse out of the pasture. (2) Rideability - they allow full ankle flexibility, and my heels actually are able to be even lower than when I wear my dress leather boots. However, some may find they need wider stirrups as the boots add width. (3) Fit - they fit me great, and were perfectly broken-in after two wearings. I could tuck my fleece breeches into them, and my calves are about 14"; if my calves were any bigger I wouldn't be able to zip up these boots. My foot size is 6.5, I bought a 7 which was perfect. I cannot find one thing to criticize.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful, Useful Gift This was the best Christmas gift I received: Stylish and practical. I put these boots to the test the other night when the temperature dropped to -11F. While it was too cold to ride, my toes and legs stayed perfectly warm without any extra socks while doing barn chores. These boots are just as comfortable for riding as they are for walking. I truly enjoy wearing them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love them Love how these fit. I have very small calfs and they fit. It is so hard to find a thin shaft on a winter boot that doesn't shift when I ride. I wear a size 8 and they fit a size 8. The foot is thin and fits through a stirrup perfectly. My feet stay so warm and sometimes are even hot!! They flex at the ankle and are not stiff. I can't believe this boot was so cheap. It is built like the $200-300 ones. the zipper is fine you just have to lean forward (like a ski boot) when trying to zipper

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Boot-Tight Calves-Too Tall I just bought these boots and found them warm. The zipper is stiff, I had to use a zipper hook to pull them up. The foot size is true to size, but recommend going up a 1/2 size. The calf is extremely tight. I don't have large calves, but these run very narrow. It would help if they would add gussets to the calf for some stretch. The boots are very tall. They cut into the area behind my knee. May have to return them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great warm boots I just ordered a pair for my daughter for Christmas. Now both me and daughter have a pair. They keep your toes warm in the winter. The only negative is the zipper... it's hard to zip up most of the time.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Use caution! Very disappointed in these. Very poor fit and not true to size. I had to go up one size for the foot and then the calf is huge. I sent back the first pair and it cost me $15 to ship them back. I have worn Mountain Horse for years - good fit but don't like the way the zippers break. These also look and feel clunky -I should have sent them back. Maybe they will work for some people but I would be very cautious. I could not be more disappointed esp after reading some of the positive comments in these reviews.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great economical winter boot for kids if they fit! We bought these boots for my son for Christmas. He wears a Youth 3 1/2. We researched on the internet and found that a Ladies 6 is comparable to a Youth 4 so that is the size that we bought. When the boots came in they looked very cool (according to my son!) and seemed to be very durable. Unfortunately he could not even get his foot to go all the way into the boot. They were just too small. We ended up returning them and buying a different Tuffrider style through a local tack store so that he could try them on and have them immediately. The boots were great looking, but this particular style just seems to run extremely small.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Boots!! I got these boots because my feet get cold easily. They work great! My feet don't get cooled and they relay conferable. I am not sheer how durable they are because I have only had them a few months, but a horse with shoes stepped on my foot and it didn't eve make a mark. I did order them a 1/2 a size bigger and I am glad I did because they fit great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great riding boots These boots are really warm, and have excellent flex in the heel/ankle area essential for riding. I have really enjoyed them thusfar. Fit is great and true to size chart.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent boots. I purchased these boots for my 14 yr. old daughter two months ago and waited until she wore them in some seriously cold weather before I reported on them. As you may have read, the zippers have been an issue for some. I ordered them knowing that. We figured it would take several times wearing them before it worked itself out and it did.Despite below freezing temps and wind, her feet have remained warm and toasty.She actually wears a 5, but I purchased her a 6 and they fit great. She has slender calves, so plenty of room to fit breeches and thick socks.They came out of the box ready to wear. She has ample ankle movement and the material has not damaged her saddle at all.I would highly recommend these, but you need to have slender calves.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Another winter riding boot in which the footbed is way too narrow for a winter and cold weather riding boot...not enough room for the foot and toes to get adequate circulation and especially not enough room to wear heavy wool socks, though it is slightly better than teh Ariat Bromont. Additionally the length of the footbed was WAY short....the size 10 fit like a size 8 at best.
    Date published: 2010-12-06
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good boot for the winter I usually take a size 7.5 but a 7 fit well. Since they are so well insulated I don't think I'll need heavy socks. The zipper wasn't a problem, but I need a boot jack to remove them. That may change after I break them in. Very comfortable to ride in.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice winter riding boots I just started wearing these boots for winter..bought them a few months ago from here. They keep my feet very warm....I am a small person...size 6 and these boots are might want to order a 1/2 to 1 size larger. I cannot wear anything but a small reg. sock for them to fit...but they still keep me warm. VERY TIGHT in calf..takes me awhile to get them zipped...sometimes hurts my leg..but decided to keep them anyways. Hoping that by wearing them all winter now they might stretch a little...??? Price for them is worth the tight zipper...:)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Boots This is a great pair of boots. Very comfortable and no 'break in' period at all. Warm and cozy like wearing slippers. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Calf fits great and I find boot is true to size.
    Date published: 2010-11-19
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Value I LOVE these boots. I have a small calf (13.5") and these boots fit perfectly, zipping is no problem and instantly comfortable! I just rode in them and they fit nicely in the stirrup, bend great at the ankle, footbed is super comfortable. They stay dry and are warm. I can even wear them under boot cut jeans or ontop of my winter breeches.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boot, great price I just got these boots, so I cannot speak about their durability, but I can say I was very happy with the fit. I do not have a large calf, but these boots fit comfortably over my Kerrits Sit Tight & Warm breeches which are thicker than my normal breeches. I did go with a size larger than I normally would buy (normally wear 7 or 71/2 and I went with the size 8) and they fit perfectly. I would recommend doing that so you may get additional room in the calf. These feel great, and they look fabulous for the price!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Them!! I absolutely love these boots! They are so warm and confortable. I read many reviews before I bought these boots and do agree that the calf is snug. I only have a 14" calf and they fit me perfectly over a pair of breeches. If your calf is any larger, you may have trouble zipping them. The zipper is a little stiff but after a few times of zipping them, it became easier to do. These are the best winter boots I have ever bought!
