If the field is icy and hard or getting to the field is dangerous my guys stay in as they are severe shape throwers in the field they go crazy! I am far to neurotic about tendons etc after an old mare got it and was out of action ever since she never cae right.
Also I don't like destroying my fields in the winter as all the grass is then ruined for summer.
I generally ride out for an hour and then when im mucking out and doing yard work I let each one out for 15mins or so to stretch there legs.
Some have called this the lazy option but if I want to keep them in full work I think 2months inside(depending on ground conditions etc) with at least one hours ridong and a leg stretch isnt to bad.
Do you agree or so you think full turnout is best do you even get a say in it if your horses are in livery?
Alot of liveries here don't let there horses out at all in winter as crossing the yard is to trecherous and a liability issue if someone was to slip and fall.
