Is is okay to ride in grass (that includes flatting and jumping)?
Where do you ride in winter?
If you only do light riding in winter, can you get back to jumping again in spring? Will the horse forget all the previous jumping training?
I only ride in grass all year round its much nicer to ride on.
In winter its fine to ride on just no sharp turns if its wet or greasy and avoid riding in the saem area constantly as it gets poached up.
Don't need boots or shoes to ride in grass jsut tack up and head on
If you rode lightly all winter, you should make sure your horse has been brought back up to fit before jumping him. He might be a little fresh and need a few reminders, but I doubt he would completely forget it.
My arena is grass for right now until we can afford to have sand put in. In the winter, I do mostly trail work to avoid tearing up the arena. It's great if you have an indoor arena you can trailer to during the winter months.
