I used to be pretty hardcore. (Though I used to also have use of an indoor, so there's that.) I would ride in any temperature! As long as the ground wasn't frozen of course. Not only that I would show in sub zero temps! Indoors of course.
But now? Now when it's under 37 I generally opt out of riding. I'm a little more gung-ho if it's daytime, but at night? In 20 mph winds? Nope. Not for me! Maybe it's because I don't have a trustworthy, well behaved equine partner now? Maybe it's because I'm getting old? Maybe it's because I'm stuck outside in the elements? I don't know really. Maybe it's all of those things. But I've definitely lost my edge.
What are your feelings about riding in the cold? Do you ride outdoors? Know where I might find my edge? 'Cause I hate being a wimpy ammy.
