I will still go if it's 20F or above unless it's windy enough to cause frostbite. (When I was a kid I got frostbite on my cheek once, and since then I have to be careful.) I wear a t-shirt with a sweatshirt over it, a winter coat that's actually a ski jacket, breeches with schooling chaps over them, silk glove liners under my crochet schooling gloves, 180s earmuffs with my helmet, and Grabber toe warmers inside my boots. Sometimes I also wear Futis. I have one of those quarter sheets, but I haven't ever used it.

I love riding in an open field when the snow is falling. It's so peaceful.

I love to go ride in the snow! We have a big mountain behind our house with lots of trails and it's so peacefull and quiet back there. It feels really neat just you and your horse and to run away from the real world for even just a little while!

I wear my breeches and then a pair of snow pants on top. I use my bareback pad so I don't slide around as much but it's still really warm! Better than cold leather thats for sure! Than I wear snowboots and put a hot pack in each of them. If the hot pack gets too warm I put one in each of my jacket pockets and shove my hands into them every once in a while. My top half I usually layer with fleece and then a good winter jacket. Then it's gloves a scarf, and my helmet. I love it!!
