    Too cold?

    Hi everyone! I was just wondering if you think it's too cold to ride tomorrow. The high is supposed to be 18 degrees F and the low is supposed to be 9 degrees F. Please answer this question as soon as possible. Thanks! :)

    As long as youcan you handle the chill, then it should be fine. Just do some warm ups with your horse to get the blood flowing good and maybe even do some stretching your self :)

    I've ridden in -15 (in an indoor) As long as you can handle the cold and you have a cooler for walking around to warm up/cool out youguys should be fine! Have fun!

    Thanks!

    I ride in an indoor as well and I always warm up the horse when I ride and stretch at the beginning.

    If you do I would recommend going bareback and w/o a bit. Cold metal isn't fun in the winter

    Also be aware of your footing - some footing turns as hard as concrete when it's that cold, and it's not great for the horses legs. Otherwise, if you can stand it, go for it, lol

    Yeah, just make sure you wear layers and long underwear! And I would suggest warming up the bit first, too.

    Personally, that's too cold for me, but I have a medical condition with my hands that keeps me from staying outside for long when its really really cold.

    I don't think so. I ride in -25C. However I use lots of socks and gloves.
