The trails behind my barn go out onto a section of the Broad River which is par ocean/part fresh water behind housing (military housing), the beach isn't wide open sand there are grass beds and trees and area's of sandy beach. We wanted to see if we could make it all the way to the boat ramp so we cut behind officer housing there is a spill way that runs off into the ocean. So I took my friends horse down and it really didn't look to bad till she stepped off the ledge and we had to swim to the other side..only about 20 feet. But it was FUN and hilarious...I almost died laughing. She's only 15 hands, I think Aidan could of done it without swimming but it was funny.
