    Good Morning my time!

    I get such a kick.. in a good way, with all the photos and vids. To see your horses and area from where you live. Rather amazing that we are from around the World yet we can show, tell, learn and have some fun.

    I have become confused. I thought we walk the dog but ride the horse. I took bugs down to the beach this morning and we walked for a mile or so then turned around and did the return trip, the object was to get him used to the surf when its running, Waves 500 yards out to sea so quite some noise. He did not want to walk throuh the creek but got over it. A good time was had by all, but no ride this was a boys bonding session.

    As a treat I allowed him to munch on the new grass outside the kitchen.

    He is looking a little thin but as you can see the rain brought the grass, pity there was not enough for her to wash the windows. Well that's just the way it goes some times. Now back to cooking dinner

    We are on the Atlantic Ocean. Drop a pebble into it in the you.K. And we will get the ripple here. These are small waves hitting our petrified coral reef cliff, that is like razor blades, that is about 20 feet high/down. We get surf that hits it and goes up over 75 feet, higher the our tall 2 story house. With a little breeze we get "salt events". Everything covered.

    So I understand Stan. Sereno does not like the ocean. Perhaps if I stopped pushing him off the cliff and telling him to swim for it he would have done better.

    Beach OK as long as surf down and .... over there.


    It has taken me all morning to get into my old Tinypic photo place to get some older photos.

    Beach ride 4 years ago.

    My wife and I would do a lot of riding along the beach when we had our boys at this stable but never took photos except for these few. Here we are with a couple of friends on a 5 hour ride. Sereno (the gray) has the insulated saddlebags with lunch that we really like and use a lot.



    My wife on Chican getting into his paso corto as we leave the stables at Sea Horse Ranch.

    Stop to watch the "kids".





    After a couple of hours we stop for lunch and enjoy the view and company.

    Back at the stables; Sereno is always watching me and tells me things. Like "take this stuff OFF and FEED ME!".



    Horses all put away and back home. Time for a dip in the pool and watch the sun set over Puerto Plata.

    I'll work on our last ride in the compo in the hills to show you a little different picture of things here.

    Sorry about the sizing but.... I don't care. LOL.

    Hi all!

    Serena....wow! Nice photos! I rode once on the beach of st. Croix, it was AMAZING!!! Always wanted to ride through the surf. Amazing to think you can do that often!

    Nvr2many, sounds like a fun trip! Enjoy!!!

    Got up early here today to get a ride in before the rain hit. Ahhhh, what a great way to start a day....in the saddle. Proud of my doggie-do too. Yesterday I was a bit worried...the heat was bothering her on the ride. She's twelve and won't stop until she collapses I'm afraid. Today, since we rode early and it was cool, she did well. 😍 Gotta keep my eye on her, she's the love of my life!😍

    So have been wanting to do this for a while, so since there are so many newbies here, why not now? I feel I don't all of you that well either, as I only joined a month ago....so here a few questions for all of you...if you want of course.....I'll start.....

    Occupation: elementary teacher - love my job, have taught for 17 years!!! Oh my, where have the years gone? I've taught every grade 1-6!! I also do some teacher training on brain research in the classroom, and have recently published a book on the subject! . ( I'm a little bit proud!)

    Marital status: married for 15 years!!! Yikes!

    Children? None, but we do have a doggie do we also are blessed with Many nephews/nieces as well as three great nieces and one on the way!

    Do you live in rural/suburbs/urban? I live in small town America where everyone knows your name. 😉

    Where do you keep your horse? My mom has acreage not far from me, so I keep mine there since I live in town.

    Hobbies besides riding: we enjoying hiking, 4-wheeling, drinking wine, cooking, drinking wine, hanging out at our cabin in the mountains, drinking wine....

    If you could ride anywhere where would you like to try? Australian outback

    If you could have a job that included horses, what would,it be? I would love to open my own school where part of the curriculum included horseback riding!

    Ok, I'll stop there for now! Can't wait to get to know all of you!

    Hi NickerMaker71, Ok I will start...........

    Occupation: Dog breeder (toy poodles) for 10 years and homemaker (daily chores include more than the house, horses, chickens, dogs, you get the idea.

    Marital status: Second marriage, 2 years this June

    Children? 4, 2 mine, 2 his, we have them part time.

    Do you live in rural/suburbs/urban? I live on a 400 acre ranch (about 5 miles outside a small town but only 15 from a larger one), organic fed beef owned by my inlaws, There are 4 houses, we rent one.

    Where do you keep your horse? Outside my door! I am very fortunate.

    Hobbies besides riding: My farm animals, the dogs, just being with and doing things with my husband and kids.

    If you could ride anywhere where would you like to try? This will take more thought. I could think of many places but my short term goal was the beach and we are going Wednesday!

    If you could have a job that included horses, what would,it be? Own a stable. Would love it!

    Whew! I made it! Next.........................
