Hard horse, too.
What would you wear to keep from getting wet? After a while, I mean. Chaps would inadequate. Leather would work for a while, but then it wouldn't. Sooner or later, it's going to be coming through. That snow is going to melt, and it's going to make for a wet seat, no matter how you slice it.
Then you slice it a different way. Fer instance, a floor length oiled canvas duster. Put one on the hoss too.
You use paraffin to keep you duster and chaps waterproof.....
Bultaco. It's called a poncho. Covers body,saddle and legs
I remember hearing that there is no such thing as bad weather, instead there is inadequate clothing. When I worked a night shift I would leave the house in warm sunshine and return in the cold pre dawn, either way I was inadequately dressed.
Horse has never seen a lazy boy ,fire place or bourbon, it's a wonder they ain't all mean as a snake, horses be tough period most horse think a blanket is a chew toy.
"Hard Man In Hard Weather".Nah, I think that's the saddle horn.
Ten million snowflakes in this picture, but the man on horseback ain't one of them.
Dad sad the coldest place on earth was horseback in weather like this. He would know.
