Top Tips for Riding in Winter


Here are some of Equestrian Escapes Top Tips for riding in Winter, for horse owners and horse riders alike! 

1) Ice ice baby - once we’re in the thick of winter avoiding routes where there is known to be water or icy patches is safest for you and your horse.

2) Layer up - it might seem obvious but making sure you are wrapped up properly is essential for enjoying winter riding. Nobody likes frozen toes!

3) Clip and rug - keeping your horse warm and dry with a weather-appropriate rug and clipping to make sure sweat dries faster is key. 

4) Keep moving - your horse needs to keep going in the winter, so even if it’s a short schooling session or popping over a few jumps, an active horse is a happy horse. 

5) Darker mornings and evenings -  high-vis clothing and accessories for you and your horse are especially important if you are riding out in winter.
