Riding in the snow??
Last winter, we got almost 3 feet of snow where I live. We always get at least a foot, so from the end of December until the end of February the ground is pretty much invisible. My mare hates the cold in general, and tends to get stiff and sore in the winter. (She's not allowed to come in and get out of the cold, but that's a whole other story...) Anyway, when I rode her in the snow last winter she hated it. She'd go if I made her, but I think it was just too cold around her legs. Is there anything I can do to make it more comfortable for her? Like would polo wraps or some sort of boots help her, or should I just give up trying to ride her during the winter? (By the way, I generally only do walk/trot in the snow, even if she didn't mind it. She's also barefoot, so the snow doesn't clump.)
