Need your Encouragement yet again please
Ok, I am over the flu, there is only a few inches of snow on the ground and one of my horses is really itching to go for a ride, so.....I usually don't ride in December until March but it's been mild so I need all of you to tell me to get out there and go for a ride. Last time I posted something like this was in the summer & I was gonna beg off going to a horseshow with my daughter, but you all talked me into going. Appreciate that, need it one more time please?

Get your butt off the couch and go riding dammit!!! That work for ya? Seriously, I do not know of any circumstances that cannot be made better by going for a good ride.

Go riding. Winter weather is the time to dress up like a marshmallow in a snow suit and run through the snow... like a boss.

Do you have an indoor arena available?

I could not imagine not riding through the winter.

Edit: I prefer riding outdoors even in winter, but right now both our trails and outdoor arenas are mud bogs and swamps.

This rain has got to stop......

Right on thanks! Actually I rarely sit on the couch, I go do kickboxing instead, but I really need to cut a trail in the arena before we get more snow.

No indoor arena, if I did, I wouldn't need your words of encouragement. If the snow is too deep, I don't ride, period. Horses hate it & so do it but it's only 4 inches out there.

How deep is too deep?

Is it a wet snow, or a dry snow?

Hmmm, I would saw a foot or more, too bouncy jumping through that. When I say one horse is itching to go, I see the other guy (my showhorse), hiding, he hates, abhors any kind of riding in snow, he pouts. His sire on the other hand, doesn't mind a short hack in medium snow.

Dry snow, this is the Cariboo, high altitude, nose bleed type dry.
