Being another from Arizona, I can't help but agree that, if it's not very humid, riding when it's 95 isn't going to kill your horse. I usually don't head out to the barn until after 6pm, but even then it's still 104+ outside! If you're planning on riding for an extended period of time in the heat, I would suggest water breaks for both human and horse. But, really, your horse should be just fine working when it's hot.
And, pssh, only 95? I got excited the other day when it was ONLY 96 at about 7pm!
Falling off doesn't hurt.....
Hitting the ground... now that hurts.
