Just wondering if you are speaking as a farmer or a rider there?
My dad (the farmer) only let me walk in fields if it was even the tiniest bit muddy. It leaves huuuuuge divots in the ground at speed.
In fact, I usually had a path that I was allowed to ride on, not through the field willy nilly. Especially with no till becoming much more popular in terms of soil health, there's much less of a chance to remove hoof divots.
Yes of course! I cut cedar trees for one of them...
They mostly disk every spring around here.
I'm a farmer and a rider!
ETA: Our no-till equipment is super heavy duty, some hoofprints aren't gonna affect anything. Plus we often disk the perimeters of fields and high-traffic areas. Heck, we turn cows out on corn and bean stocks. They do waaaay more damage than a horse and rider ever could. Do not ride on a planted field, obviously (common sense should tell you that).
Separate names with a comma.
