Being a Canadian, I've just got to get over it as more than half the year is winter lol, even in Southern Ontario.
Lot's of layers are super important! Long johns under jeans, winter boots, like 4 shirts, a sweater, a winter coat, scarf, winter gloves, and a hat for before/after. I have a head band that fits under my helmet too!
I ride in an arena and on trails/roads and still keep regular exercise times and frequency, as in riding sometimes 4 horses everyday :) I ride bareback lots as it's warmer and spend less time walking!
I know some boarders don't come to ride in the winter because of the cold but not me! I'd rather winter than summer...it's never to cold to ride!
