IF you get really deep snow(sounds like you don't?) I'd be careful about trotting in it too much, as it puts strain on the tendons.
We had a blizzard last night causing us to have a snow day today and it left us with a little bit of deep snow. It's just the wind that got everyone I assume because the snow is barely over my ankle. Usually we would've had deeper snow by now but the weather just hasn't been right. In the winter I only ride Quinn in an outdoor ring. That's the only place to practice riding at the moment because our boarding stable doesn't have an arena and he is almost finished with a brand new barn. There's no holes in there and maybe a little bit of ice if Tom can't get out there to break the ice. The ring sounds safer.
