I missed out on the group photos, but had a fantastic ride alone..she was really relaxed and so was I!
The next time out, we were all just naturally separated, by leaving at different times to hit the beach. It was a higher tide and everyone did their own thing. I again had a nice, fun ride with a bit of galloping and trotting in the surf , with the mare. Trotting in the surf really makes for a buoyant, lofty and round horse as they are looking at the ripples of rushing water below themselves! I loved it!
I then discovered, that the other thing we have in common is: we are peace being alone and enjoy less pressure. Groups can make us nervious, and we tend to separate eventually for more solitude-
Though -this being said-we are social in our heart and love a few trusted companions that are longsuffering with us.
