In my last post, I hinted that I would be going on a fun adventure while on vacation in North Carolina.
I’m happy to report that the adventure most definitely happened and it was epic!
My dad, sister, and I went horseback riding at Equine Adventures in Frisco, NC. We rode for 45 minutes on gorgeous trails in Buxton Woods, and then spent 15 minutes riding on the beach.
As we came out of the woods and crossed one last sand dune before reaching the beach, the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse was visible and absolutely gorgeous. The beach was practically empty and really allowed us to see the natural beauty of Hatteras Island.
The whole experience was simply incredible.
It was Hannah’s first time horseback riding, so she was a little apprehensive. Thankfully, she ended up loving it. The only thing she didn’t love? A sore butt the next day!
My horse’s name was Cash. He made me laugh because he kept eating leaves while we were on the trails.
My dad grew up on a farm in a rural area of Pennsylvania. He used to own horses, and even rode bareback (without a saddle) often. Needless to say, he was super excited to trot and canter on the beach.
Throughout the whole ride, I kept thinking about how beautiful God’s creation is. The horses we rode were so gentle, and the ocean went on for miles and miles. It was truly an experience of a lifetime!
