Sounds like you have very similar weather as we do - when I became my mare's owner, she was boarded at the time, so there was the advantage of an indoor (albeit small) arena. On sunny, blue sky winter days, I rode her in the outdoor arena.
I would say that given the extreme temps, I would hold off unless there's an indoor arena - this is coming from someone not afraid of the cold, but to me, there are limits.... :)
