If I wanted to withhold water from my overheated sweaty horse, he'd have to wait until November to get a drink considering he's sweaty just standing in the barn the past few days (it's been >100F). I've yet to see anyone who uses their horses hard riding fences, endurance, or all day trail riding keep their horses from water. I figure it's just like me- maybe I shouldn't down an icy bucketful all at once after a run, but reasonable amounts while I am hot and while I cool down prevent dehydration and all the issues that WILL cause.
