How do I get my horse calm and relaxed when riding ? it gets really hot in the summer here in South Africa and he always works himself up and gets tired soo quickly.

make sure that your clam and having fun, because your horse can feel your energy and body language
maybe ride him early in the morning or almost at night cause otherwise you wont be able to do much him. i guess what makes him stressed is the heat while your riding
Flatwork/ dressage
Try just talking to him
