I have my horse at a barn that doesn't have an indoor. It depends on the winter but anywhere for a couple times a month to 2 or 3 times a week.
This winter was great for riding, we had very little ice and after big storms we made paths in the paddock with the snowblower.

I ride almost everyday in the winter, we have an indoor arena. its pritty nice but I would LOVE to go trail ride in the snow I think that would be soooo fun you know. But there are a bunch of woooses at the barn. And they hardly ride out in the summer and its just on the property. For being there only two years ive only gone out once on the county road with cars. It was fun! Even though my horse spooked at a semi who didnt slow down and we had to do a one rein stop in the ditch cause he didnt even move a little or give me any time to get out of the way with out cantering off.

im a sissy and i dont ride my horse in the winter because its cold, but i do get out with him and do groundwork when its not too cold

Our horses know our secrets; we braid our tears into their manes and whisper our hopes into their ears.

i ride in every weather ! i always say " if you donīt want to ride in bad weather, you wonīt get to ride at all" but that only applies here i have an indoor arena access but i prefer to be outside !
I guess im used to it since i had outdoor practices in soccer all winter long, and there if you didnīt show up for practice you better have a good explanation !

I'm more interested in those who don't board at home, but would love input from the lucky souls who have their horses in their backyard too.
Well I'm located in Alberta, Canada so...we get A LOT of snow during the winter(which happens to be half the year). I have had the chance to board AND have my horses behind my house. When they were at my house I usually took a break off riding during the winter. If I did ride it would be trails in the snow. As for when boarding, I ride 5-6 times a week.
