I'm very very lucky. My livery has the entry to a 2 miles of sand beach. Plus whenn the tide goes out you can go across the bay. The school is between dunes with a canter track down one side. Because of my lads age he hasn't meet sand yet but soon will I hope.
As for snow, all winter was snow so yes to both. The snow rides were uneventful a part from reliesing just how fresh some horses can and how much you need waterproof trousers.
