Equestrian Life is an online community for horse people.
We bring together horse people across all disciplines, breeds and sports.
We invite you to connect with others who love horses as much as you do.
Yeah. I usually wait until the evening when the air is a lot cooler so she can still get her exercise. If I didn't ride in the heat, I wouldn't be riding at all in the summer, it gets to 30 degrees most days. I get up at 5:30 AM in summer to ride.
It depends...if we are cool and it suddenly gets hot then no we dont ride. If it has slowly gotten hotter over the course of time then yes we still ride. We usually hit the mountains and woods where it is cooler or ride to a lake or creek so we (including the horses) can go swimming and cool off...and if we are at an event we make sure to let them rest and that they drink often.
