    I like spring and summer when it's not too hot, but not too cold. I don't like it when the arena is flooded because my lease is too buisy trying to avoid the puddles (which if it's flooded, their everywhere) to pay me any attention, and I don't like it when it's all dusty because then the wind picks it up and it goes in your face, in someone else's face, everywhere. I like it when it's a damp arena, no dust and no puddles! Though I'd rather dust than puddles though!

    summer. I think when I have my own place, though it'll be alot more work, winter will be my favorite time to spend with my horses - but right now, I board and winters are the most stressful part about boarding...so while I've always LOVED winter...I'm finding myself disliking winters more and more with each year of boarding

    I love winter. It's competition time so there's competitions every weekend from March until September/October. We're usually have State comps around that time too, so it's a lot of fun to travel up to 13hours for a comp haha. It's cool enough to wear jackets and our knit vests for PC. Riding in summer means riding a very sweaty horse in shorts which sucks.

    Well I also think 50 degrees is pretty chilly, but that's cause I'm from Mississippi and we aren't used to that kind of weather. But if you wanna see hot in summer come to Mississippi 60 degrees feels nice here. In the summer it gets like up to 98 with an index of 103. It's humid here in MS in the summer, which is why I hate summer. It's supposed to get to 27 tonight and that's not normal for here and I'm going to a football game tonight with the band! D:

    I love Fall. Trail rides in all the color, with leaves crunching under their feet, cold enough to bundle up and not sweat when riding, but not so cold that I can't feel my fingers! No sweaty horses, and no frozen water buckets. And, of course, shopping for new blankets!

    Katesrider011, sounds like Mississippi is a lot like Central Florida. The reason I hate summers here is because of the humidity, the heat itself doesn't bother me very much. We actually had snow flurries and thin sheets of ice on the water last winter, and I'm hoping that it's a tiny bit less cold this year. It was awful!

    Mmpgrumpy: Same thing here last winter! We actually got 2" of snow it was amazing, well until we had to make that day up for school I personally loovee the cold weather, this summer it got up to 109 here with an index of 115 and that's ridiculous! I'd much rather it be 18 degrees than in the triple digits

    Katesrider011: Any snow we got melted before it hit the ground, but it was still freezing! My lesson group had to reschedule quite a few times because the rest of them thought it was too cold to be outside, haha. I still went out to ride, until my fingers nearly froze, that is.

    I spent a year in Massachusetts a few years ago; we moved back to Florida because it was too cold and not sunny enough, haha. It was kind of nice to have snow days rather than hurricane days, though.

    Mmpgrumpy: Oh them hurricanes annoy me, we went to Destin once and the vacation got cut short cause a hurricane was coming. I believe it was Ivan, or something Like that I can't remember. It was the year Katrina hit the Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana coast pretty hard.
