Most Excellent Day

I had a most excellent day at the beach yesterday!

AC and I packed up the ponies and headed out. The weather was absolutely perfect. Of course, as soon as it's spring break, the weather turns bad (currently pouring down rain outside) so we had to make the most of our last sunny, warm day.
Ready for an adventure

The coast turned out to be sunny but sooo windy. It was crazy. I felt like I was going to get blown off my horse. AC and I just went alone so the horses were both a little calmer than the first time we went, without the really spooky horses there, but Misty was still quite excited.

When we got down on the beach, we let them trot for a bit to get their extra energy out and then settled down to walk and play in the water. And we actually got them in the water! Misty had to take the lead and all she needed (well, after a few times of running away from the waves) was a little tap with the whip and she went right in. What a good pony! We even got to do a full out gallop this time. She was going as fast as her little legs could carry her, but it wasn't all that fast, haha.

Proof that we were, in fact, in the water. And cantering!

Crazy mane
 It was a blast. Misty was so great and I was really happy with her. Afterwards we loaded the horses up in the trailer with their lunch and went to the brewery for our own lunch and drinks. Such a great day!
