Hot here in central valley, CA....However, we are lucky because it can be up to 30 degrees cooler in the morning living here. Dry heat. After 6pm is great too.

I think mostly people, the crowd I talked to are taking better care of their horses than they are themselves.. I'll let you know if I hear of anything else..

I passed out from heat exhaustion years ago and the horse did fine. They are most likely a bit tougher than we are. However, I have too much money, time, and effort invested in my horse to risk her health by working her in the excessive heat. If she dies, I may never be in a position to get another horse like this. Besides, she is my friend.

And that's the truly important part....

I may be willing to risk myself, but I feel that I'm held to a higher standard when making a decision that affects someone else (my horse) who has no vote.

Even if it is hot, you could try walking your horse in hand or doing ground manners, grooming, etc. That way you are still working with him/her and you get to hang out with your best friend. (:

Good for you! Around here (near Ann Arbor) we are mighty nervous about the hay crop...all crops in fact. We could sure use some rain!

That's what me and my beginner spouse have been doing. Where we live in Michigan the heat has been brutal, the weather just shy of drought conditions. The facility where we keep the critters doesn't have an indoor, and the outdoor has no shade whatever. There are miles of shady trails nearby, but the black flies are so bad-think B-52 bomber size-the horses are absolutely swarmed so that's not an option.

Bottom line? When the humidity is so bad the horses are sweating standing in the pasture and I have sweat dripping into my eyes just standing it's too darn hot to ride so we do ground work and other things.

The extreme heat wave had calmed down a little bit here. The horse flies are not quite as bad. I think they died of a heat stroke. We have ridden a little bit on the weekends in the mornings. That will have to do for a while.

It's been in the mid 90's and humid, but not raining at my barn...the absolute worst possible scenario. I have fly bites all over my legs. Yuck! Luckily, my horse doesn't seem to mind the heat at all (haven't been riding, but he's not dripping sweat and grumpy like the others.)
