Is it bad to ride your horses in deep snow??
I was thinking that was the best time to ride them so if I get thrown or if my one spooks I'll just land in fluffy snow :) and because the snow is deep they won't get to run to fast if they take off on me.
Depends on the snow. If it is not too deep and doesn't have an icy crust, it should be fine. But ice on the top of old snow can cut a horse's legs, and don't make him work hard in deep snow. If you wouldn't want to run through it, don't make your horse.
