Do you have any tips to keep cool during the summer days at the barn?

Do you have any tips to keep cool during the summer days at the barn?
I have a frog tog!! You can use it when you are riding. You can have it around your neck or around your water bottle. It really helps me. Also good for your pony. But staying hydrated is defiantly very important!!
Thank you so much guys! (I loved the hiding from the trainer thing, hahaha) I hope not to die this summer at the stables, haha ;)

Also if you’re not in drought, a water fight is also a fun way to cool down
I saw this mister online the other day, looks like it could be useful to you
Hi Silvia!

I live in California so I understand the struggle to find shade or cold water when it’s 107 degrees. Definitely STAY HYDRATED drink lots of water. I have a hydro flask that I fill to the rim with just ice and then of course I pour water in but I always bring 2 extra bottles of water so that way I just pour them over the ice. I also have a towel I think the brand is “Mission” and you soak it with water, wring it out, and then snap it and it turns freezing cold, I usually put this around my neck. I also recommend taking frequent walk breaks and hiding from your trainer so she doesn’t ask you to do anything. 🤣😉 hope that helped!
