Beach Riding is the best!

There’s nothing like a ride on the beach to make you feel like you’re getting away from it all. Especially during deer season! Stay tuned for a return-visit report, because I'm heading back there as soon as I can.











It was a clear, mild noontime when I arrived at Popham. I only had time for a hour ride but it was the highlight of the week. And it reminded me of how lucky we are to live by such natural treasures and to enjoy them on horseback.

Ok, I’m sappy. But it really is awesome. And from what I hear, it’s better than Scarborough – if only for the lack of paper work, fees, and compulsory poop cleanup which one finds there.
















Many thanks to the gals at Hill N Dale Farm - Holly Draper, Sonia Theobalds, and company - for inviting and motivating me to seize the day!

Maddy-So glad you could "get away" to the beach! What a fabulous day! We have been saying that all the tracks in the sand...coming towards us, away from us, and crossing, seem like the paths in our lives...So glad you enjoyed!

Hi Maddy, It was great to meet up with you and Shea after all these months of e.mail contact! Shea is as perfect and kind as I had imagined, what a sweet horse. We are planning on heading to Popham again soon so we will be in touch and we'd love to meet up there again if you can make it! Sonia.
