Outdoor Winter Riding: Keeping Warm
I've noticed lately, it's starting to get colder. Just yesterday, I was looking at the radar, and it's calling for snow! Nooooo! I don't have an indoor arena, nor do I have enough room to build one. Snow is great, but it can leave after Christmas. Riding outside in the snow and wind is absolutely dreadful, and by the time I'm done my five minute ride, my fingers are too cold and sore to take the saddle off. So, last January I've decided to just bareback it during the cold season. I've already gone out and raided the tack shops of winter stock. Insulated quarter sheet for the boy, and tall horse tech boots for me. What does everybody else do to keep warm during the winter weather?
