Sun was shining & was above freezing. Snow was deeper than I thought, maybe about 6 or 7 inches. No worries though, Scotty liked it.

Such nice exercise for the legs! Good job. I'm still getting Cin used to being ridden in the snow, he doesn't like it much, ha ha.

Scotty's evil spawn (my showhorse) hates the snow. He was so relieved I didn't pick him! He hid behind a tree the whole time in case I changed my mind, so unlike his father, Scotty thought it was fun.

Technically this is my husband's horse, mine was hiding behind a tree. He pouts when I ride him in the snow. Scotty, his sire, doesn't seem to mind this depth at all. Last year I tried riding in about a foot & a half of snow, with an ice crust on the top, that he didn't like.
