My friend was in town last week and was talking vacation plans when she asked me about riding at the beach as part of the fun.
And all I could think about was the numerous cases of flesh eating bacteria being reported from the Gulf of Mexico in the recent weeks.
I can only imagine the potentially life threatening damage and subsequent vet bill that would be involved for a horse.
Not to mention the summer crowds are a pain away with the 100 degree days, fishing lines, kids, and dogs to worry about.
So I will save my beach ride for the off season. October is quite pleasant from the back of a horse.
