Too much adrenaline?

Soo..we did lots of cantering (well, galloping and racing up hills) out on the trails today as my last time on these trails for now with some of the kids at the barn I friended in the 5 months I've been there. I'll be moving my horse closer to home tomorrow after work, so I'll definitely miss those trails and people.

But back to the point, I think I gave myself too much of an adrenaline rush? Or maybe I overheated myself?

My main question is, can you give yourself too much of an adrenaline rush?
After I got off, untacked, and hosed her (and myself lol) down, I felt rather lightheaded and my heart rate was wayy up. My heart rate averages around 50 beats/min, and it had to have been in the 80s from how fast it was.

I feel just fine and dandy now, but what was the reasoning for it? I was sweating, but not nearly as much as I did working all week and I never got the feeling I did today. I always keep hydrated as well. Any input?

Probably more like overheating than adrenaline :) Blood pressure changes can cause dizziness in people as well - if it happens again, try to make a note of the circumstances and check in with your dr.
