No matter which continent you live on, there is likely a time of year or a type of weather that leaves you with poor footing for riding.
Whether that is slick mud, heavy snow, slippery ice, or deep sand, poor footing can be straining, tiring, and even dangerous for our horses.
In this video, I’ll share how I made decisions about what kind of footing I will (and won’t) ride in, plus how to modify your ride to be safe and still work on you and your horse’s skills.
Watch the video below and then leave a comment with the type of poor footing you and your horse have to contend with most often!
See you in the comments,
p.s. Those poor footing days can be excellent opportunities to practice unmounted exercises or many of the beginner exercises that can be done at a walk or slow trot from my book, Stay in the Saddle. Check it out here.
