How much do you groom your horse’s feet/legs in winter?

How much do you groom your horse’s feet/legs in winter?
every other day unless he's really muddy.
It really depends on where you live, how wet it is, and how dirty your horse can get! It gets pretty muddy where I live so I clean her legs every time I ride and almost every time I'm at the barn. Some days the mud has dried or there's not much on so I can just curry comb. Other days there is still wet mud on her legs so I will wash them. I suggest always cleaning out their hooves though; with mud and snow, there is a lot that can get stuck and give them bruises.
I like to do it every time I ride. It gets pretty muddy where I live so it takes a while. 😂
