It's hot here, too. I went to look at a horse today with my husband. The girl had him at a show nearby, so we went to watch. There were only like 10 people in the one class, and the ring is pretty big. The judge calls for a canter and after a while I realize she hasn't said otherwise yet. That was the LONGEST canter I've ever seen! I'd say they all ended up making 3 laps each. It was so hot that half of the horses literally quit cantering half way through!
