Riding in the snow? All I thought of was all those really iconic pictures of foxhunters burning trails through fresh powder and having a blast.

GO GO GO. Even if it's not THAT epic, I wish I had snow on the ground here to ride through right now (badly, but even a frosty trot would be fun). Where I am, all we'd be burning trails through is fresh mud. Go and let us know how it goes (maybe pics? ) so I can live vicariously through your ride in snow wonderland. :3

I wish we had some snow on the ground. So far a very wet mild winter in our area. While it's a nice change from the blizzard we had a year ago, it doesn't make for very jolly outdoor riding.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.

Ok, thanks, thoroughly convinced I will go riding tomorrow before work. Yes I will take a picture & post it so I can't back out. Appreciate your help everyone.

Let me put it to ya this way: the cubicle walls are grey, the carpet is grey, the sky is grey, and the general mood is grey. If I could get out, I'd go, so, YOU HAVE TO GO FOR ME, and everyone else that can't. Enjoy the freedom that you have and ride, baby, ride!
