It's a scorcher out there!

When it's reeeally hot, what time of the day is best to ride? I need to practice barrels and poles and whatever else basically everyday so my horse gets used to it, but I don't wanna give him a heatstroke!

Early in the morning and later in the evening :) Last summer I got up at 6 to get all of my riding done by 10!

First light and the last hour of daylight are your best bets - unless you have access to an indoor(shaded) arena or are going to be riding on shaded trails (especially those along a body of water).

The arena I ride in has shade from all the trees around it, but only in some spots. And there's tons of shade outside of it.

When I stay at my uncle's reining ranch in CO in August, it gets HOT. I'm up at 5 to muck out and get 10+ horses worked by 9.
