How's your weather? Can you ride

The weather here is driving me bonkers! I'm in melbourne aus and we've had stinking hot days lately. Until yesterday when there was 2 hours of niceness when of course I was busy. Now it's freezing and raining. SERIOUSLY MELBOURNE!

Means I can't ride Ella as I get heatstroke at the drop of a hat and don't want to stuff up or it's raining .

Today is a great day in SW Missouri, USA. We hit 65 degrees, but it is windy. Truthfully, if you own a pair of long underwear and a decent coat with gloves and hat we have not had more than 3 or days where it was unsafe to ride due to weather. Our temps have been averaging above 30 degrees with little rainfall and no snow.

The wind has been the most frustrating. Strong enough to rattle the rafters around here.

Currently GORGEOUS in Minnesota. 43F!

Too bad it gets dark around 5:30 or I would be trail riding pretty much every night this week!

stop you're belly aching and mount up. I ride in 100 degree days, and freezin days. Long as it isnt a steady rain, or the trails are slick with ice I don't let it change my plans. I invested with some good clothing this year and enjoyed every day I rode out. It was 98 degrees and raining during that pic on the right.

If the OP is prone to heatstroke - I don't see that as belly aching.

North victoria, had days of 40 degree heat which I have been riding in and had a lesson on today but it poured rain all day yesterday so everything is slippery, no lesson for me!

The temperatures are dropping here now, and currently are about -25 to -30 by Celsium, -35 in windchill. No, I'm not riding now, but I still do some groundwork.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
