Much of the country has been experiencing a colder than normal deep freeze and here in Oklahoma is no exception. We had our fair share of snow over the weekend and still haven't reached above freezing. My horses have been taking turns spending some time out in the indoor arena and my filly Scout, who doesn't have shoes, has spent 30 mins at a time turned out in a snowy sand pen just to get some fresh air. My retired english horse Woody (who has EPM) can not be trusted in the snow, so he has been stuck with indoor arena turnout time. I have learned to chase away the chill with a few tried a true products for myself and my horses.
I would be lost without my Patagonia Down Sweater Coat. It is amazing! Keeps you super warm but is unbelievably lightweight. Perfect for riding and barn chores. I usually layer a long sleeve tee and cashmere sweater or polar fleece half zip under it and stay nice and toasty.
I can't stand having cold feet and Bogs Boots keep my feet incredibly warm and are also very comfortable and waterproof. You can't ride in them but work great for general barn work or walking your dogs in the snow. The come in a short and tall length. I played in the snow with them all weekend and my feet never got cold.
