As you can see in the charts, when it's hot, the humidity is actually more important than the temperature because it affects the ability to cool by sweating. When it's 90+, there is a big difference between riding in the southwest where the humidity is <10% and here in the southeast where the humidity is 50+%. If I'm out riding after 11am here, it's so hot and muggy that the mares are literally dripping sweat even at a walk.
