105 degrees it too hot

105 degrees it too hot to trail ride and I have a whole week that I could take off. I guess I may as well work and save the days for better weather.

So disappointing. This heat caused me horse-time as well :(

Man that is disappointing. It's especially hot this year and just not safe to go riding for either horse and rider.

Weather can be a tad annoying! Too cold in the winter for me and too hot in the summer, rainy in the spring, and then it starts to get darker earlier in the fall...A huge problem if you don't have an indoor arena with lights!

Never a win win situation!

It got up to 105 here yesterday but my husband went out at 8:30 am...and rode until 10:30 The heat didn't explode until he was off the trail.

Or you could hook up your trailer and tow it to a higher elevation location and ride those trails. It was 98 here yesterday afternoon and for me a short 30 minute drive has me almost 3000 foot higher in elevation and 15 cooler in temps. By dark when I finished the ride, the temps had dropped to a mild 70

If I had a week off, I'd be camping in the mountains and riding every day.
This is prime riding season for me.

Lucky Painted! It has been in the nineties with high humidity in Mi. Either you ride at night or early morning. The flys have been horrible. Glad I got all of my hay in before the hot weather started!

When I lived in Tucson, we would be on the trail by 6 am and back home by 9 at the latest in summer. Then we'd wait til about 8 pm and go out til whenever if we wanted to do a night ride through the desert, actually those were some of my favorite rides!

We are going to hit the trails this evening around 6pm, and ride till after dark. It should be getting pretty cool by then, and if we get to hot us and the horses will be taken a nice dip in the river :)

This time of year, with it so miserably hot, is the time of year we rest our horses......

My mare lacy goes barefooted all year round.

Sonny, my wife's' quarter horse, has really soft hooves, so we took his shoes off and plan to put them back on in late August.

No riding for us (except for short rides around the pasture) until September.

We plan to start riding again on labor day, and have a trip planned to Cataloochee mid september.

Can't wait for fall, it's my favorite time of year.
