Reader Photo Challenge: Signs of Summer

There’s not much better than a warm summer day with your horse…

Which is why we wanted to see what summer looks like at your barn. These five readers responded to our reader photo challenge with these photos of their steeds decked out — or bedded in! — so they stay comfortable in the warmer months.
