Winter in Florida means that the bugs, heat and humidity, and daily thunderstorms are gone and crisp, glorious, blue-sky days that are perfect for horseback riding. Because winter is the dry season in Florida, it is the best time to ride in Florida's magnificent wetlands, which are usually too wet for riding the rest of the year.

Here in Texas it's not uncommon for summer to carry on all the way to late October.
