I always hated cleaning my tack after riding in mud. I'm also very anal about how clean my tack is
I can sometimes get iffy about riding in mud. Sometimes I don't mind it, others, sometimes makes me want to not run.
I guess that's only because I've had a horse put down because of the mud. It was a non-riding injury, but it still makes me worry a little bit every time. I guess that's I never had the best times when riding in mud.
