The term "horse surfing" sounded intriguing, and as my age didn't seem to be a limitation for this adventure, I decided to give it a try. I ride for pleasure back in Massachusetts, and had always wanted to ride a horse along the ocean shore.
This equine experience surpassed all my expectations and and provided more excitement than a 65 year old should have!
The guides were extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and were conciencious about making sure that we were given a horse suited to our experience level as we would ride bareback with only a pad and no stirrups.
We started off with a ride along the beach to get acclimated, and then it was time to enter the water, which the horses eagerly did. We were all laughing with joy at the experience of plowing thru the water on the back of our mounts, feeling the powerful muscles of the horse moving under you as the water swirled around the horses' shoulders and over their backs.
I had seen pictures on the web site of people standing up on the back of their horses and asked to try......I only stayed up a few seconds before I tumbled into the water, but I'll never forget the experience! On the return, our guides let the horses lead and we plunged thru the waves holding onto their manes. Awsome doesn't come close to describing this adventure.
