Riding in Grass...?'s
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?
Anything else added in helps! Thanks:)

What do you think of this?
As far as grass, no problem. I flat and jump in a grass arena and in grassy fields. As long as it isn't slippery, it seems to make a nice surface.
if you only do light riding in winter the horse will not forget his training, he might need to be refreshed, and you wikll need to build up his jumping muscles again. :)
That's good to hear(: thank you!
Riding in grass is fine. Actually, at one of my riding schools, their jumping arena was grass instead of sand!
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.
Dont need boots or shoes to ride in grass jsut tack up and head on
Grass is perfectly fine to ride in.
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.
