Without an Indoor Riding Arena ... How do you do it???

I'm a little worried about this winter. We don't have an indoor arena at the barn where I board, and I don't know what I'm going to do about riding. I've been working a lot with my horse this spring and summer and I don't want all the work I've put in to be wasted. Last winter I wasn't able to ride much at all and it sucked. I guess there's nothing I can really do. But what do you guys do??

Thanks!

Well, at my old barn we didn't have an outdoor arena. We still rode though- I ride all-yr long. You should still be able to ride, but I wouldn't ride on like, SUPER cold days or anything. I think you'll be fine! Just bundle up, lol.

I used to live in Michigan so I know winter are tough in your area. Can you get the outdoor arena scraped of snow? That would increase the amount of riding you could do.
For just the cold, we ride as long as my fingers don't freeze

When I lived in PA we trail rode all year 'round even in snow and cold. The only time I didn't was in a real rain storm or when the temp got in the mid teens.

As we used to say 'Cowboy up"

It's a lot easier in SC!

We don't have an arena, we borrow an out door one. Hack down the road in the dark with all your flashy lights on and school for a while, then hack back safe

I do have an access to an indoor arena, but I prefer working outside.. iīll only not ride outside when the snow is that special kind of wet where it builds really much up in the hoofs or when itīs crazy windy weather.. frost doesnīt bother me one bit

As long as the ground isnt rock hard I ride outside. If we have a stretch of bad weather or ice/snow, I find an indoor and rent it for an hr or so and split the cost with friends who also want to ride. Lots of places will rent their indoor, you just have to look around or ask.
