If you live in an area that gets heavy snow and bad weather during the winter, being able to ride consistently can be a hard task, especially if you don’t have an indoor riding area. Start planning for the months where you will be snowed in with this tip.
Tip of the Week: Ask local riding clubs and arenas if they have haul-in days.
A lot of facilities that host horse shows or other equine events will allow you to haul your horse in for a few hours of riding in their indoor arena. If they don’t offer this, suggest it! Some facilities charge a small fee which can be a great fundraiser for local clubs.
A quick Google search will help you find arenas near you and the contact information you need to inquire about haul-ins.
