What Heat?

There’s been a North Carolina heat wave in the last few days—Friday topped the charts at 104 degrees. Today reached almost 100 degrees, but that didn’t get in the way of lessons at Cooler Horsemanship. James and his students got started at 8 AM to beat the full-bore heat. I sat in the relative coolness of the grandstand, bottle of ice water in hand, and marveled at the tenacity of horses and horse people. By 10 AM I headed home to central air conditioning, but James and his students were still going strong. Hats off to all of you!

The chaps must go on, even in a heat wave
