I had a horse go down on me when rounding a corner while galloping in the snow. I came off and my snow boot got caught in the stirrup. Thankfully it popped out after my mare jumped back up and got one stride in. She ran to where the other horses had stopped, and I was happy to make that little walk on foot, rather than attached to her while underneath. Now I never ride in snow boots. I will where rubber boots (we call them muckers) with two pairs of wool socks, even in -25*C temps (colder than that, I don't ride unless I have to). One scare was enough for me.
I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane
