How do you stay motivated to ride during winter, when it is dark, cold or rainy?

How do you stay motivated to ride during winter, when it is dark, cold or rainy?
I just go anyways but if it’s snowing that’s when I don’t go
Warm clothes and making plans with other people at my barn to meet and ride. Then I have to go because I’ve made plans. Also just knowing that my adorable pony needs love 😂❤️
I try and think of my pony and not myself. She needs to be worked and if I don’t lunge or ride her I’ll pay for it when I do ride because she’ll be a brat. So that keeps me going knowing it’s a life or death situation 😂
Sometimes I’d be like ugh I don’t really feel like riding if it’s like rainy or dark or cold but I find if u tack up and get on the feeling just sort of goes away 😂
