Riding in the snow

Hi I was wondering what you all think about riding in the snow. Currently I am not allowed to ride in the snow as my parents consider it dangerous however neither of my parents ride. Do you think that riding in the snow more dangerous than usual? Thanks :)

Snow is probably less dangerous than grass because if the horse slips, they have snow there to stop the motion of their feet so they can't really slip. I love riding in the snow, the deeper the better!

Thanks for your reply I will try to tell my parents that :)

Riding in the snow is not more dangerous, but do keep in mind that the snow hides rocks, holes, logs, and ice. Do stay aware of your horse's footing while riding as it is much more difficult for your horse to regain their balance on frozen ground.

Riding in the snow could be dangerous if the ground is frozen beneath it. Otherwise, go riding! (It still could be dangerous anyway).
