A horse doesn’t need to be worked in the summer to be watered off properly. Horses may come in from being turned out hot and sweaty and they should be watered off slowly in small amounts ( 6-8 gulps) until they refuse to drink any more. When shipping in hot weather you should offer your horse water on a longer tripsĀ  and many times when you unload they will be quite hot and again you should water off slow.
