Riding in wind
Do you ride in rather strong wind (20+ mph)? My horses go crazy when we have wind blowing around and not that good to ride even in arena, so I prefer to stay away from riding in such weather.

I voted yes because I have but don't like it. Kansas is very windy so don't really have a choice most of the time. We try to head for the trees so we are out of it. If it gets over 30mph I wont go. We had 75mph winds last week :shock:
We set the round pen up between 2 wind rows of trees for that reason.
Edit: We don't have forests in Kansas, we have wind rows :lol: We dont say "its over in those trees" instead "its over in that wind row". Goes back to the dust bowl days I guess.

I can't stand having my hair in my face. Guess thats why I don't like the wind. Plus here its usually dust blowing so you end up with grit in the teeth :lol:
I ride in the wind, as long as my horse is cool with it, I'm cool with it.

I do but I really don't like to! (around 25 mph is my max). For some reason I just don't seem to ride as well when it's really windy (can't figure that one out). That and the horses are spookier, the jumps start falling over, and if there's a bite in the wind no amount of thermals will keep you warm!

Ill admit I'm a little scared to ride in high winds. I have before but its not at all to my liking. Last time it was windy out by my friend's house...we rode Buddy and Arby.... a big slate of tin blew off from someone's roof and almost hit us!!! :shock:
