The snow has dropped in after a small delay and it's been very cold. Is it safe to ride a horse in the snow? The snow down here isn't too bad it's pretty soft. It hasn't been cold enough to become crisp. Today it was pretty warm for a winter day so the snow turned to slush in most places. My mother is convinced that it isn't ok for a horse to be ridden in the snow, but she is a beginner as well as I am and I thought it would be a good question to ask the more experienced. If you would like to know where I'm talking about I will tell you that I live in the state of Michigan. I don't know if telling you my location will help you or not.
