String of 90-degree days means TORTURE for horses

July and August often bring with them a string of 85 to 90-degree days with high humidity. I can't even STAND in 90-degree weather without being extremely uncomfortable. How do these horses--pulling hundreds and hundreds of pounds of carriage containing up to FIVE mindlessly insensitive people, the horses wearing full harness and bridle and bit, standing in the hot sun for nine hours a day, seven days a week, with their feet on pavement that goes up to 120 degrees--how don't they drop dead???
