Susan helped tacking the horse, Ellie.

It’s so good to see Susan again that she is recovered and back to the stable.

Daniel (Glenora) led the trail with Challenger to head to the beach, Pantai Beringgis.

It’s a short walk from the stable to the beach for approximately 1.5km.

Slowly walking at the quiet beach in the morning.

Pantai Beringgis is surprisingly clean during my visit and I hope it will stay the same.

It feels really therapeutic to have a slow walk along the beach listening to the waves.

You can check out Beringgis Beach Resort if you want to stay near to the beach.

On our way back, we passed through a village area.

We could have done a bit of slow cantering but I always enjoy slow walking to connect with the horse.

Met Susan and Clare on our way back. They were taking the riding school students out for a bit of walk.

Beautiful horses in the stable as always.
