|Yes, the thermometer outside of our arena is reading 108!|
With temperatures soaring into the upper 90's and even the 100's with the heat index, riding and teaching has become at times....well miserable! Staying hydrated during these record breaking temps has become a sport in and of itself! I've spent the last few weeks shifting everyone to morning lessons and have been trying to go in extra early to ride. It makes for a long day....especially when you are already pouring sweat by 9am!
For all my horsey friends out there battling their own heat, stay hydrated, stay safe, and always remember horses can overheat too! Take lots of walk breaks while riding and try and find some shade! And if anyone is looking to donate an air conditioned arena....I'll be glad to take that off your hands!
