Here in Florida... Rain can be an every day... one minute sunny... one minute rain kinda place. That being said... There has been many time I have ridden in the rain. I just always make sure to hang it so that it can dry and then oil it afterwards. And I have had some of my tack for over 10 yrs.... still in exellent shape.
Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson
