I have heard of the grease as well, a lady here used to do it and it helps!
I ride in the snow all the time! Our horses are barefoot here so I don't worry about snowballing, but I always bring a hoof pick with me just incase.
I do a lot of trail riding in the snow as we don't have a ring, being very cautious and paying attention is the biggest thing, I've gotten used to the trails now, and know where the ice is and I stick to the trails that I only know. In our field I jog where I feel comfortable and that's about it! It's hard keeping warm at a walk when its -30 or -40 out though lol, bundle up!
