Its either too hot or storming to ride. That combined with a headache for me means no trails for me or the horses. I think the horses are okay with it. Me not so much.

Here too, I don't even want to do ground work, no sense in causing crabby horses
On a positive note I heard on the news that the Colorado fire has finally been controlled...hope it stays that way!

Ruined my plans for horse camping and trail riding. We stayed home, but trailered to a local park at 6:30..

I am concerned because drill team practice has not been cancelled, no shade full sun and six PM...not the time to ride.

I will not take my horse or my body for that matter out to work in this weather no matter who says that I am obligated to do so. Several years ago, our local high school band insisted on making kids practicing marching in the extreme heat. Several kids ended up in the hospital and the band director ended up in trouble. Thankfully, my daughter had enough of a since of self preservation to sit down and say she couldn't keep going.

It was only 96 at 0930 when I went out to do a light trimming this morning, but the heat index was 108. By 1230 when I finished spunging off their legs and face it was 100 with a heat index of 115. It was 99 30 min ago and the index is down to 112. And I can look forward to more of the same this week.
I think I might need to seek mental help for my 4 year old who, while I sweated through trimming the 5 year old, thought it was great weather for running through the pasture with her tail sticking up even though she already had a 3+ inch wide strip of sweat coming down the front of her hooves from just standing in the shade eating. When it's 35 degrees out they'll roll in the pond, but when it's to hot to think straight they won't even walk into the pond, but will run around like it's a brisk Winter day.

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.
highest elevation in Missouri is the top of the hill..lol
Glad someone is enjoying the weather right now..we just may to live vicariously through you so keep us posted ;)

I was up this morning at 4am, trailored out, and back by 9:39am. It was just starting to get really hot when we got home. It's 104 right now. There's a full moon tomorrow, and we are supposed to go night riding. That's what I to do in the summer if I want to ride.

I rode 12 miles at 6mph in 100 plus yesterday. My horse pulsed down in 15 minutes. You guys are soft. Turn the AC off, drink water and stop boo hooing about the heat. You guys are convincing yourself it's too hot.

The heat index today at my house was 107*, yesterday in the middle of the day the heat index reached 113*.. Ridiculous.

Celeste, I've heard they're having problems because of the heat at the big cow horse show in Perry..
