28 C I'm guessing, since F you would be a popsicle!

Light colours, and hose yourself off afterwards :P

I'm in the same boat. It's so darn hot this week! Let me know if you come up with any stay cool ideas! Make sure you and your mare stay hydrated!

Well I ride in an indoor arena but that is just like an oven so what I did was went out and made cool neck bands. Watersorb Water Absorbing Polymers Cool Neck Bands

I'm also trying to figure out a way to make some kind of leg wraps for my horse so his legs stay cool while riding.
