This area is almost always in need of rain (then again everything is adapted to dry living with this being a pretty desert-like area). However the rain has ruined my plans for the day, including a morning lesson! It's also been responsible for canceling a local show I was hoping on seeing a little of.
So here I am, bored but curious and wondering what others do with their horses when it's raining.
I know some people that ride in light rain and I have no issues with riding in a little drizzle, but then a concern is footing for the horses. Do you ride/drive in the rain, right after it rains, or wait for it to dry?
Some horses stay in pasture year round, some don't. Do you bring your horses in if rains? Is covering a horse in heavy rain ever necessary?
If you have any other comments or advice about raining and horse care/riding, please offer it for someone still learning like me!
