Caring for your horse in the Heat of Summer

In the South and other parts of the country high temperatures can be a challenge for your horse operation.  The challenge is to make your training enjoyable, productive, and safe during hot weather.  First, try to ride early in the morning or late in the evening to avoid the highest temperatures of the day.  The morning hours are preferable because you have the benefit of the cooler night air preceding them, so the air feels fresher and, in the case of the South, less humid.

Horses, cattle, and other livestock all need relief from heat. CoolBox provides that relief, effectively and inexpensively. Multiple units can be used in tandem to generate a constant flow of cooled air, which helps to eliminate mosquitoes and stagnate odors.
