    Snow!!!!

    Just wanted to say that the snow is so bad in my part of UK that I have only been on a very short ride once this week, some of the snow has turned icy so doesn't look like I will be riding anytime soon! PLEASE clear up I want to ride again tomorrow!

    Unlucky!!!

    Well here we started off the week at 35 degrees cel. And now it's 24. The flys are BAD and when it's hot you can't ride before 7pm

    Pffft. You call that snow? HA! We get enough snow in places that the snowplows have a wing attachment to get the snow being plowed can get over the 6+ feet tall snowbanks. What you got is a normal snowfall for us in dead winter. LOL

    Us Brits aren't very well prepared/used to the snow. Everything comes to a stand still. I personally like the snow in general but not from a horsy point of view. Would love to experience a winter over there. I'm in the planning/researching stages of organising a trip to texas to ride on a ranch in the summer. Is much riding done during the day in summer over there with the heat?

    I love riding in the snow. As long as you either don't have shoes on them or have now pads on them then you are good to go. The coolest thing is cantering through a field with a couple of feet of snow and seeing it billow out.

    Personally I like the snow better then rain, so I'm happy to see it. We have had WAY to much rain lately

    well depends on your sprt, mine is eventing which is in winter so I use the summer for spelling and occasional trail riding after 6pm :) and beach riding and swimming the horses :)
    If your a camp drafter then they do their sport over summer and use the winter to spell the horses.
    I haven't done much this year so i'm going to try not be lazy and do some trail riding on my newly retired eventer :)

    Netty, how much snow do you have? We had some snow the third week of November here. We, too, dont' deal so well with snow. We have a lot of hills and few plows, drivers who freak at snow and the snow we get is often very wet and compacts to a very slick , icy surface. When it's really cold, the snow has a kind of "grip" to it that is much easier to drive on than what we get here, called "Cascade Concrete", named after the local mountain range.

    DX don't hate the snow. I live in Texas and I've seen a white morning ONCE in my life... in February. And right now in Dec its only 40 degrees and all us Texans are BUNDLING. Except yesterday it was 60. But last week it was 40 and rainy. Our weather is on a "if you don't like it wait 5 minutes and itll change" basis. Texas summers are HOT and if your not used too it you will be in for it. I've lived here all my life and I don't start getting hot til well into the 90's but in the middle of summer I can't ride until after 7 pm.
