My horse goes barefoot through the winter and she doesn't have a problem walking, trotting, or cantering through fresh snow.

I avoid crusty snow. No good can come of it.

Not sure what the "should I ride western" has anything to do with this. People have been riding in the snow in western tack for well over 150 years, and in english tack for even longer. It makes no difference.

I think knowing the trails you are riding over in the snow is the most important thing, so that you can avoid potentially hazardous places. I do my best to condition year round, but I know what trails are safe in the snow and which ones tend to ice up.






There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

If there's no ice, I w/t/c in the snow. Lots of fun, and a nice change for the horse
