Folks, what do you do with lessons when it's too hot? It's in 100th this week, and my lesson is usually mid of the day. So I plan on canceling it (as neither of us can work in such a weather), but I feel really sorry about it... :(
Unfortunately, I think your options are to cancel or move your lesson to early or mid morning :( I hate doing that, too, but weather like that won't be comfortable for either of you. We're dealing with the same thing here, and even when I dress cool and ride in the indoor arena, the humidity about kills me.
I agree, ride earlier/later or cancel. Here in the desert it easily gets to 110 degrees and higher. My lessons are at night for my sake and my mare's. Weather this hot can be dangerous and miserable. Posted via Mobile Device
Here in Seattle area our summer has been totally nonexistant. I mean I literally had the heat on tonight! No kidding. It is COLD! GRAY and rainy. But , it warms up to like 65 to 72 in the day, so ok for riding. No beach lazing, no lake swimming, no bbq's . It's as if summer hasn't come. Very wierd.
I've only had one lesson in the last month and a half! It's been in the upper 90s here since the beginning of June, and my boy is too old and too big to handle it. I feel really bad, but I see no reason to make him work when it's like this. I work full time til 5:00 every day so I don't have a lot of other options :( I take advantage of any day that's bearable to get him some exercise, but a lesson puts too much stress on him in the heat.
