I agree with the above, if its muddy then I scratch. Its not worth risking you and/or your horse being injured for one round around the barrels, poles, jump course, etc. I'll still ride if its slightly wet, but I watch the riders before me and how their horses handle it and I'm also very aware of how my horse moves and what the footing is like.
Although, if your not confident to ride because of the weather, its a bit of a waste of time to ride. Your horse will sense this and both of you will be off and not communicating well together which could result in a loss of confidence from horse/rider, a fall, training issues, dissapointment in your ride...
Simply, if you don't want to. Its not worth it.
