jumping a horse in the snow

I don't know where to put this so I'm going to put this in horse talk. I also put it in horse training. If I put it in the wrong section please feel free to move it :)

I jumped my horse in the snow the other day and I have people who say it's stupid and dangerous to the horse. He never showed signs of not wanting to jump and we checked to see if there were any ice patches that he could slip on and there was no ice, anywhere around. If my horse didn't want to jump or would have refused the jump I wouldn't have done it at all.

I want to explain the jump so, it makes more sense to the HF community. :) There was a barrel laying on the floor and a pole on top of the barrel and the other side of the pole was laying on the floor. So, it was pretty much a ground pole but, with one side propped up on the barrel.

So, what's your opinion on jumping a horse in the snow?
