4 of the best short winter yard boots

Keeping your feet warm and dry when you’re at the yard is a must for all equestrians but finding the right short winter yard boot can be difficult. Before making your purchase, decide what’s most important to you: price, comfort, warmth, durability or appearance.

The best winter yard boots will be robust, comfortable, hard-wearing and offer excellent grip on a range of surfaces. They need to be able to cope with both mud and mucking out as well as offer excellent comfort for the endless walking we do on the yard or even with the dog!

    After reading your e-mail about winter boots I bought a pair of Woof Wear short yard boots from you. I didn’t know they existed until I read your email and was delighted to discover them. I am on and off the yard like a yo-yo throughout the day and have my boots on and off many times. It has always been a source of frustration to me having to untie laces on my normal boots – what a waste of precious time! The Woof Wear boots take two seconds to undo the single Velcro strap – such efficiency!! So thank you for promoting your products as you do otherwise I would never have made this treasure of a discovery!
