    I always wait until 6-6:30 to ride in the summer. (and usually put my horse up at dark.) If it's so hot that I can barely stand to be outside, then I'm not going to ride, and if I do, it would be bareback and involve water, lol. After our workout (arena work), I always take my boy on a trail to cool off and then I untack, spray him down with the hose, feed, and then turn him back out with his buddies.

    Here in east texas its been reaching 115. I generally either ride my horse in the morning or late in the evening. IF I do ride her when its blisteringly hot then I don't ride for more than 20 minutes tops. Also I feed her electrolytes once we hit 100 degrees and if I see her sweating profusely in the pasture I will put her in a stall with a fan for a while.
