i live in the tropics and we get some crazy humidity. even in winter its humid especially if you start moving around. you just have to be mindful of what you do and how hard you work them in the heat. during summer i try and ride early in the morning or later in the afternoon when it has cooled down a little. you just have to be sensible about exercise and make sure she has plenty of shade to get under in case she is too hot. and i hose the horses down after every ride so they dont stay hot for long. i also make sure there areplenty of electrolytes in their feed so there is no issues with tying up if they have sweated a lot. you can get electrolytes seperately or in a complete supplement form
