In Az, we don't ride until after 7:00. Still, it can be 105 F outside. Our horses are used to it, so it doesn't really bother them. Since it's after 7, the sun has basically set, so that helps to keep it cooler as well. When we finish riding, we hose our horses off and make sure that they have been walked out until they are returned to their stalls. Most of the time, my horse is in the pasture at night, so he has plenty of time to walk about and cool off. After riding, our horses are also offered water so they can rehydrate.
