    RE: [RC] Riding in the rain - SunsetOvrC

    I just wanted to clarify to a certain person that I was concerned about riding in the rain because it was 55 degrees out.  To me that is COLD when it is wet (I live in the South).  Maybe I should have clarified a little more.  I know it won't hurt when it is warm out, it actually feels good.  Except when lighting is crashing down all around you and you can't see 3 feet in front of you, that has happened to me before.  I am also concerned because my horse is on pasture board and there is no shelter except for trees.  The other day it was pouring down rain while it was pretty chilly, and then later that night it got pretty cold.  I couldn't blanket her because I didn't know if it would rain again.  But somebody had a point, horses have survived in the wild for ages with no shelter and blankets.  I just want to do everything I can to keep my horse healthy.
