Having some troubles with my tennessee walker mare getting into the gaits instead of pacing and I think part of it is she is out of shape (and overweight from a good pasture this year)
So my plans are to work her year round, we just trail ride but might do some competitive trail rides also just as an incentive for us to both keep working.
What are some tips/tricks/advice for riding in the winter and snow?
I'm in upstate NY where we might have 3' of snow for a while but can plow an area to ride but then might run into some frozen ground/ice issues. It is a very light/fluffy snow so doesn't tend to pack in her hooves while out in the field also like the idea of some snow for resistance to make her work a bit which should also help on obtaining the proper gaits
Just thinking get in the mindset now, and buy anything extra sooner rather than later (cooler? And what else?)
