[RC] headaches & dehydration - Colleen Carlton


To echo what others have said already, you are probably dehydrated and
need to drink more water, sport drink, or juice.   I now use the
CamelBak hydration method because reaching down for the water bottles
while riding, and then sliding the bottles back into their holders was
too much effort.  I ended up not drinking often enough.

The camelbaks come in back pack or fanny pack models, and you can
position the drinking tube in easy reach either at your waist or chest.
Then all you need to do is bring the tube to your mouth and bite down.
I still carry one or two water bottles on the saddle in the hot weather
so that I can soak down my horse, or myself if needed. 

I even wear the camelbaks when I'm working out in the yard for extended
lengths of time.  If you decide to try these out, buy the bladders that
have a wide opening.  It's much easier to fill the bladder with ice
cubes and beverage, and its easier to clean them out when you're done.
