Hey, Am I being stupid?
I'm new to horse and I have been riding for under 3 years.
Ok, I try to ride ever day regardless of the weather or time of day or night.
Yesterday, I was out riding in the woods off the trails in about a foot of fresh snow tracking a moose. When we were on the trails we were cantering most of the time. My horses get bored on trails and prefer to explore the woods. I like it too.
Then last night I took my other horse out riding in the fields and around the pasture. Even with the cloud cover I could see ok with the fresh snow.
So, here is my questions, is this high risk? Should I not be riding like this? And I ride alone most of the time.
