Horseback Riding on Jekyll Island

Brandon had to work until noon on Saturday, but he wasn't on call this weekend.
So, per usual, we decided to get out and enjoy the benefits of coastal Georgia living.
We headed down to Jekyll Island for some horseback riding.
We have been wanting to do this for so long, and the fall and spring are the best times to do anything if you live on the coast because the massive amounts of tourists have died down, plus the weather is absolutely perfect. While the bugs are still out, they aren't nearly as vicious when it's a tad cooler.
We were the only people scheduled to go on the 4:30pm ride, which was fabulous.
Our guide was a nut-super funny and her family has been on the island since the Indians inhabited it.
Riding horses has always been therapeutic for me, but riding them on the beach is soul moving. 
Brandon's horse's name was Spirit, and mine was Apache. 

We highly recommend riding horses on the beach!! It was so relaxing and rejuvenating! 
Since we are experienced animal people, the guide let us do some trotting on the beach-what a rush!!
I can't wait to go again!

  9. Absolutely breath-taking! So awesome that it's so nearby for you! I used to be afraid of horses as a child, but I kinda wish I knew how to ride/had some horses now. :)
