Fashion Alert – Hot winter breeches to survive winter in style

Fall is well underway and the bitter cold winter weather coming up fast. There is nothing worse than sitting in a cold saddle with paper thin breeches. The icy winter wind will slice through your thighs like a knife as you try to enjoy a winter wonderland hack. But you can keep your valuable rider legs warm and toasty if you wear winter-approved breeches. When you picture winter breeches you probably think of dorky looking snow pants with knee patches but that does not have to be the case. Here are some STYLISH winter breeches that will still keep you warm in the middle of January in Northern Canada…
