For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Mountain Horse
Model: Rimfrost Rider Tall Boot
Category: English Chaps/Boots/Helmets

Purchase: I had seen these boots numerous times in various catalogs I had gotten, inlcuding Dover and Stateline Tack. Most of the time they were even on sale. Little did I know they had an even more current version of the boot only in tack shops. I believe it included more reflective tape and had a slightly sleeker styling to it. When it came time to actually purchase them (it was getting so cold my barn mates and I couldnt bare it any longer w/o them.) we couldnt find them anywhere! Finally at "Horseman's Exchange" in CT (where I live) we found them. Of course we all wore the same size, and thank god they had a pair for each of us. I needed to get mine "tall" so I had to get the old style. I love them and plan on buying another pair. And they are affordable... I paid $90.00 for mine. When I believe Ariat's version is over $200!

Likes: I love these boots. They are so warm, and they keep not only your feet warm, but your whole calf too! They are comfortable and took about a day to break in. I wear them all the time. And they arent too warm to where in spring or fall either! These boots get rid of that horrible "shattering glass" feeling you get when you hop of your horse in the dead of winter. They cant be easier to slip on and slip off with their large zipper and security velcro strap at the top.

Dislikes: I've had them for over a year now, and just about end of spring when it was getting a little too hot to wear them, I noticed they started taking on water. Now they WERE waterproof, but I wasnt aware that they could possibly loose that factor over time. My whole foot would have to be submerged in water or mud to feel the wetness.

Quality: The boots are very hardy and sturdy. I've been stepped on and I've stepped in everything you could think of and they've outlasted all of it. They have a thick rubber synthetic leather like outside. They also have a large easy zipper up the back for easy on easy off. The newer versions velcro is a small half circle and the older version is a normal strap. Both are reflective. The inside is a thinsulate material to keep you feet warm and dry. They arent heavy, and they definately dont weigh you down. They are very flexible, easy to break in, not like leather.

Summary: I would recommend these boots to anyone and everyone looking for a good tall boot you can ride and look good in and still much a stall in. Easy to clean-Just rinse them off! They're so comfortable, I wear them working at the barn all day. Without them I would probably freeze. I think they are the best and only winter boot out there for english riders today. Totally affordable too!
