Hot horses and water do not mix, while the horse is at rest, period. Proven time and time again....

"Dr. Schott received his DVM degree in 1984 from The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. He started his career with three years in private equine practice in Southern California. Dr. Schott subsequently pursued advanced training by completing a residency in equine internal medicine and a Ph.D. In equine exercise physiology at Washington State University.

Since 1995, Dr. Schott has been an equine medicine clinician at Michigan State University with a strong clinical interest in urinary tract disorders, respiratory disease, and endocrinological disorders. In addition, he continues to pursue a research interest of fluid and electrolyte balance in endurance horses.

Dr. Schott played polo while growing up in the greater Cincinnati area and then continued to play polo at Cornell University and in Lexington Kentucky during his college and veterinary school years. Life has become too busy to continue this sport but Dr. Schott now enjoys working with his 8-year-old daughter teaching her to ride the best pony in the world “Rusty”.

Yep. Just some ignorant quack...

Sorrelhorse, if your horse was in that condition he is already dehydrated, and you'd restrict his water intake? More problems arise by not walking the horse until it has cooled. Many horses, if disturbed from drinking won't take in what they really need. I've seen this at the water trough when the alpha horse drives the others away. They don't return to drink but will likely wait hours before doing so.

I'm not sure what kind of campgrounds you hang out at but in my ten years of endurance, I can count on one hand the number of horses who had to be treated for colic.
