Check your battery connections? Make sure battery is charged? If you're getting no power at all you have a loose battery connection or a blown main fuse, or a loose connection between the battery and fuse box.

not sure what yr or model foreman
BUT I know on my old 400, if you work it too hard like in pushing dirt or gravel on a hot day, they have a temp sensor that will just shut them off, so as not to kill the motor
they will then NOT restart till temp come down
many atv's actually have this feature.
I would also suggest checking motor oil and making sure its at correct level and NOT burnt Black in color
it is possible to blow a motor from low oil or getting a motor too HOT

I would check battery as Jeep said and connections and fuses
