id say use your best judgement. Basically, dont jump high, lower your heights, that way you can keep em in a bit of shape while greatly reducing any kind of risk. And hey, check the ground yourself. If there is ice then its a biiiig no no. but if the ground is firm and soft and isnt slick, then why not id say =)

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.
