^ Pretty much what G & S said. I’m in Virginia and this summer has been so hot and humid, I have been doing most of my riding around 6 or 7pm when it begins to cool down. For me it’s a very relaxing time to ride, but we do try to be home before dark
Haha ok so maybe I should rephrase – It’s “cooler” not necessarily “cool”. I’m in Winchester, about an hour from DC and it’s been in the upper 90’s during the day, maybe lower 80’s in the evening but it makes a huge difference not having the sun directly above burning you to a crisp!
I wish I could trade you some of my shade for some of your flat!! Lol. There is barely a flat spot on our entire property, luckily an arena is in the works so I won’t have to go visit the neighbors to get a good canter going lol!! The trees are lovely but I can tell when my mare is done for the day because she like to run me into the low branches….
