I read a very interesting article couple days back. You have to sum the temperature (in F) and humidity. Say if temperature is 80F and humidity is 40%, then we are talking about 120.

If the sum is up to 120 - it's OK to ride normal, 120 - 150 - OK to ride but check the horse on any sign to be dehydrated, over 150 - better don't ride.

Of course, it depends on humidity a lot. Say, 100F + 30% humidity is much better then 80F + 50%.

oh gosh! haha
Every year i go to Texas and/or Oklahoma for the apha/ptha worlds. Let me just say it is hot over there! haha. its super humid, and like 90s and up. sometimes it rains and its still 80 degrees. anyways, mt horse is fine in the heat, as long as its not a really long demanding ride.
