Question
Hello sir. here in india, climate touches 30 degrees in the mornings. in which climate do horses require more exercise. i mean hot or cold climate?

Answer
Hi Caine,
        It takes about the same amount of work to prepare a horse for racing, regardless of the temperature. It all depends on the horse. Just like humans we all manage fitness and speed differently and just like humans, horses adapt to the conditions in which they live.
Cheers,
Don
