Riders, on a hot day, do you spur your mount to go faster so you can feel a breeze cool you off, or do you take pity on your mount and ride him/her more gently?
I would like to be ridden harder for my rider's enjoyment, if I can find a female rider here in San Francisco.
Truthfully neither. Spurring a man to make him go faster would only make him sweat more and bounce me much more than any breeze I might benefit from. A steady pace is much more relaxing and since I prefer to ride in the woods, it's better to simply halt the carrier when you reach a clearing where I'm more likely to find a cooling breeze.
There is no need for the rider to dismount unless it's time for a break and sitting up there, just a few feet higher cools my legs better than standing on the ground if there is a breeze.
