Putting this in the health section because I'm looking to avoid hoof bruising on the frozen ground...
I have a dressage show with one of my horses on January 16th. I'm in Maryland and everything has been frozen for a looooong time. I don't have a sand arena or access to an indoor. I'm looking for an indoor in the area that I can haul to and pay to rent for an hour, but so far, no luck.
Where do you guys ride in the winter, other than non-frozen arenas and indoors? Does anybody just ride (carefully) on the frozen ground all winter? I'd like to avoid this, but if worse comes to worse... he's got shoes and could just do walk/trot, saving canter for the show warmup in the indoor...
