Nala was awesome. Went on a loose rein like a old trail pro. We went with Amore the arab.

We did all three gaits and she tried to gallop but I held her back. The tide was out and we even went through the shallow pools of water and streams.

NO new pic, hand on the reins!

8/19/15 Nala’s first solo beach trip: Hand walk to the beach!

Took a 15″ line and walked all the way down. She was calling for her pals and up energy until we got down to the sand then she calmed. I considered riding but it was so HOT!19th3 19th4 19th5

She walked back fine. I think we will be adjusted fairly quickly to solo beach riding!

Went on a trail ride around the farm and through the forest with Halla! Both horses were great! 😉

8/22/15 Just some ground work today. The weather is HOT and we have some smoke in the air from wildfires.

I am a bit lazy still from all the smoke. It is clearing out. Just some bonding and ground work today.

Nala let me hug on her and do a fingertip massage over her neck and back. She followed me around and grazed a bit.

It rained a bit so the sand firmed up and we had a wide stretch of deserted beach!IMG_20150828_180438221

Then we came back on the dune trail.
