Anyways, thank you JDI for your post.
Generally speaking, if there is snow on the ground it will mean the footing will either be to hard or to soft underneath and since you can't see ice patches(if there were any) I wouldn't recommend riding when there is snow. Another issue you have to deal with if you were to ride in weather cold enough for snow to be prrsent, is proper cooling down of your horse (careful with colic etc etc).
I have gone on many trail ride/leisure rides on trails I knew very well.
