Here we go again!
June brings the warm weather, and with it worry on the part of horse protectionists; because we know that with the heat brings immense suffering to the carriage horses. When one adds the humidity to the temperature to create the heat index (the real temperature), horses can be out in full harness pulling many hundreds of pounds of carriage and riders in temperatures of WELL OVER 100 DEGREES!! The horses are beyond miserable: they are in danger of heatstroke, and death.
