    ^^ that's the picture that made me ask the question! (love it btw) Thank you guys with all your thoughts and opinions. To me im not sure if I could risk it but I do understand now about the different types of mud and how you have to understand your horse :)

    Any time! At that rodeo, even though the ground looked scary, not a single horse even slid/fell down... We had quite a few muddy riders though.

    Haha I bet! What about all the tack to clean! I like to keep mine looking nice, that alone might turn me away from ridding in the mud ;)

    I probably wouldn't of ran at that rodeo if it wasn't a big one right before state... But I did, and yes, the tack leaning was terrible. It took forever to clean everything off.

    Depends on the mud and the footing. Dirt, sand etc.

    If its thick and deep, ill run and push my horse.

    If its thin and sloppy, ill keep the pace slower.

    I've seen horses slip and go completely over. Its definitely scary. But I've seen that happen in dry sand so...its a chance you take when you ride like that.
