No offence, but you know I'm talking about driving a horse right?Many the time with the racehorses we had to ride in snow and sub zero temperatures,
Usually we had to stick to the roads but that too could be dodgy.
We had a freak snow storm just before Christmas a few years back. We were having our staff Christmas dinner but hadn't done the shopping so I was asked to drive to town. It wasn't funny as we were on steep hills and the side roads hadn't been touched.
I took a long route and we shopped in town. Coming back I decided to take the hill road, that was fine, I wasn't going to come down the steep hill 1:25 but to go through the neighbouring village.
The 4x4 was brilliant. Approaching a corner I would say "Now car, we are turning left soon."
I turned into the drive at the top of the property without telling the car, the drove split in two, the left to the barn and the right to the house, I usually went left but with the shopping was going to the house.
I should have told car because we went neith left nor right but straight into a big old oak tree! It was very graceful with no damage to either us, car or tree. Thing was car had to pe pushed out as she couldn't grip the snow on the slope.
