First time I heard about Mountain Horse, a few years back, I remember it brought back memories from one of my first hikes. Somewhere at 6,000 ft, after already hiking for several hours, together with my colleagues we ran into a pack of amazing horses. I was expecting sheep, as shepherds often take them at these altitudes, but not horses. As one can expect from horses that live in the mountains, they were really majestic, and left an impression on the then younger me.
It’s easy to see why my mind made the analogy between those strong horses and Mountain Horse. Because you won’t find any more durable winter riding boots that look this good.
These top equestrian bootmakers started their journey in Sweden, and built their first Mountain Horse winter riding boot in 1988. They needed a boot that can withstand the cold winters from their homeland, and they achieved even more. They’re now present on 5 continents and the quality of their riding boots speaks for itself.
They place their customer on a pedestal and their goal is to satisfy every performance-driven rider, whether they prefer wooded trails or the show ring. Wearing Mountain Horse equestrian boots will show you what a durable riding boot should really be like.

These Spanish cut top equestrian boots are ideal for shows if you want to spare them, but why would you deny yourself the pleasure of wearing them all the time? With a graceful and classic design, they can provide all day and all around comfort.
But don’t be fooled, that doesn’t mean they lack the technology that makes a Mountain Horse boot exquisite.

Mountain Horse riding boots are durable yet stylish, and most of the time they fit right out of the box. No trial and error needed. They’re the kind of boots people will ask you about on horse shows, and you’ll only have good things to tell them. Though, to be honest, it’s hard to find someone that has bad things to say about what Mountain Horse produces.
A standard in winter riding boots, these are considered the best boots for keeping feet warm. Dirt-repellent outsoles provide traction in snow, mud, or on ice, 100% waterproof leather keeps you dry, and the elasticized panel on the zipper provides a comfortable individual fit; these are just few of the many benefits you’ll be able to discover in these boots.
