So, basically what you are saying is that you don't ride or work your horses in the summer? Just a little confused....
No i'm saying that I don't work or ride my horses when it's super hot and sticky outside. We have tons of nice, sunny days where the humidity isn't at 75% and you can't move without your clothes sticking to you. I don't find it to be safe to ride a horse in nasty heat, some people do. Horses born in hot climates like yours are brought up and used to being around that all the time, i'm originally from Maryland where it snows in the winter and isn't too humid in the summer...those horses tend to not adjust well to humidity and heat.
