I have been doing competitive horse trail riding and obstacle challenges for a little over 5 years now. I quickly realized that a large portion of my success in doing so was due to my horse's training, not her "street smarts." After all, Ruby isn't the bravest soul on the trail. No really. Her motto is "you go first, if you survive I'll follow."
During hot weather, or when working hard, the horse sweats to cool himself. If he gets short of water on a hot day (if his water tub is empty or an automatic waterer quits working) or has a fever and doesn't drink enough or has diarrhea, he may become dehydrated. The most common cause of dehydration is loss of fluid from extensive sweating during hard work or a long ride. The rider should be aware of subtle signs of dehydration — and slow down or halt a workout before the horse becomes seriously dehydrated.

Water. It's something we take for granted. If you need to wash out the dog's water bowl, you dump what's in it, use fresh water to scrub it, dump it out and refill, right? Same with the horses? How about a sweaty horse after a ride? Lead them to wash rack or hose and spray them down.
