We got ready to set off at midday to arrive for high tide - my lorry had different ideas though, problem with the breaks - the first time she has ever let me down! Fortunately I was going with my friend Kerry who kindly took C in her lorry.
The set up at the beach was great, good area to park up the lorry and then a short hack down onto miles and miles of wonderful open beach. We both had a warm up, schooling on the wet sand. C was quite excited but very well behaved for his first trip to the beach. We had a paddle in the sea and a lovely long canter along the waters edge. Surprisingly C didn't even break sweat - even through his fluffy coat. He obviously hasn't lost too much fitness while on holiday.
I have added some photos I took at the beach (a few were courtesy of a kind dog walker).
Plan for the rest of this week is another flatwork lesson tomorrow followed by some jumping next week. Our first BS show of the year is on the 11th of January @ SNEC - fingers crossed the lorry is fixed in time!!
