    Riding in the snow - Help!

    I have been told that I can ride my loan horse tomorrow. The problem is that the field that I could ride in has about 1ft of snow on it. I'm not sure if it's a good idea or not. What does anyone else think?

    I ride in the snow all the time, after all we have about 8 months of winter. There is over 2 feet in my pasture, alongside the road, everywhere. I just do rides for the joy of riding in the snow, no running or anything like that, just walking and enjoying time with my horse.
    My horses have their shoes pulled until spring now, so they don't get balled up.
    Just know where you are riding, holes, drop offs and cliffs tend to hide until it s too late.

    I ride in snow heaps. So long as you know where you're going and ride safely it can be fun. I keep my horse barefoot, I wouldnt want to do it with shoes on.
