Well, when we start getting around 42-45 degrees (celcius - not sure what that is in farenheight lol), you're in joddies and long-sleeved shirts to avoid our harsh UV rays, AND you've got a gazillion flies batting around you and your horse's face, it gets a little uncomfortable! Hahah
The horse's are lathered in about 20 minutes and you're pink from head to toe, despite suncream. lol
Also, in summer it's snake season, so you're always looking out for brown, taipan, red-belly,copperhead snakes in the long grass and when we're crossing streams, we have to watch out for tiger snakes!!
At least in winter, there's no snakes (they're all asleep! lol), no flies, the joddies are to your advantage and can rug up easily, there's no annoying ice to worry about and wet/slippery ground is easily fixed with a properly drained arena!! :)
The art of keeping a horse between YOU and the GROUND!
