Beat the Heat

Horses and riders standing in a pond

We are in for a hot summer. A worldwide warming trend combined with the El Nino weather pattern is bringing some of the highest temperatures on record to many places, including the United States.
Although some people may pride themselves on being tough enough to ride on even the most sweltering days, always remember that hot weather is harder on horses than on riders. Not only are they the ones doing most of the work, they also produce more heat and are more susceptible to heat stress than humans are. In other words, if you are hot, your horse is hotter.
