I don't do well with humidity..The temperature isn't what I mind, the sun is what kills me. I do NOT remember the last 5 years as being nearly as hot as this year in the sun.
According to my boss I went into heat stroke last monday. I wasn't dehydrated or anything, but the sun got me. I threw up all the water I had drank (usually one bottle an hour, sometimes two when I splash myself with it instead of drinking it lol) and came very close to passing out. I'm just glad my work truck has AC and I wasn't driving my personal truck that day (no AC).
I think the highest we've gotten is 97* with 80% humidity..and that wasn't even the day I almost passed out, lol.
My poor mare isn't too happy about it..She's been sweaty on her neck/stifles/girth/face everytime I go out to see her lately, and I feel bad, lol. Thankfully though, our wash rack has hot/cold water that actually stays cold, otherwise I'd probably spend 2 houra trying to cool her down after our rides/workouts D:
