Keeping Horses Cool

By Heather Heiderich-Farmer, DVM
As seen on

We all long for warmer weather and the longer rides summer affords. But heat and humidity are major concerns for rider and horse since heat-related illness can be dangerous – even fatal. Horses have efficient natural thermoregulatory systems to cool themselves, but sometimes they are overwhelmed and cannot compensate for the heat. Hyperthermia or heatstroke results when your horse is unable to control his internal temperature and it starts to rise.
Signs of heatstroke are elevated respiratory rate – 40 to 50 breaths per minute (normal: eight to 16) – that does not slow when at rest; a heart rate over 80 beats per minute (normal: 36 to 44 beats per minute) that does not slow down after a few minutes of rest; elevated rectal temperature over 103˚F (normal: 99 to 100.5˚F); lethargy; and/or profuse sweating or absence of sweating altogether. If left untreated, hyperthermia can cause death. It is neither the heat alone nor the humidity alone that is concerning, but the two factored together. Most researchers define high heat as over 86˚F and high humidity as 80 to 85 percent.
