    I'm also glad that it doesn't rain non-stop over here. If it did then I would always be walking my horse. Walking is good for your horse. It is possible for them to slip but it isn't likely that they will. Slow and steady wins the race!

    I think I might prefer rain over what we have to deal with. The only thing as far as the weather goes that keeps us from riding is the heat! I'm in Florida, and if we don't ride at 7 am or 6 pm, it's too hot to ride, and even then we have to be careful. Now that it's November we don't have to worry so much.

    I like riding bareback in the rain, it can be pretty refreshing.

    Here in Mississippi was the same thing this year, it got up to 113F heat indexes. That'd give the horse a heat stroke, and that is NOT on my to do list.

    Walking is an excellent exercise for horses and they are unlikely to slip. Drag those wellies on and get walking! For your own safety you could lead the horse and keep this slow and steady.

    Try some figure of eights, stopping, starting, quick turns etc so she is thinking and obeying your commands.

    Good luck!
