Back home there is an old sand query that was converted into a park. There is a trail that got around the lake that was created when they dug all the sand out and its perfect for swimming the horses. I have spent many hot Florida summer days there with my horses. They LOVED it. My big Oldenburg gelding loved to stand about chest deep and just splash in the water and my paint gelding would stand chest deep and doze off. I should look for those pictures...

Like some have said before, you kind have to feel them out on how well they swim and how deep to go. I rode a horse that would bounce off the bottom instead paddling. Which was fun to ride, but he would get scared easily if he got out too far. Had to pay close attention to how deep the water was.
