Having a walk by horse at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean : step by step, but not at a gallop !
Horses in Florida? Yeah, there are few, but there are. Certainly, it’s not the familiars « Franches-Montages » Switzerland race, but the horses of the American aera. Enough to walk around. The Kelly Seahorse Ranch (North of Jacksonville) www.kellyranchinc.net, more precisely at « Amelia Island State Park » at the top of Florida offers trips along the Atlantic Ocean. « It's great to ride in the U.S. with people of all levels and all countries », Rosalie Collot Jura jump champion in 2011 said. She and Laura Keller (my daughter) have been fortunate to along the coast like a Lucky-Luke style. But no question of going at a gallop ! « Too risky because of the tourists on the beach », the guide told us. The boss, Jim kelly, the very real cowboy fun after all, still the soul of a true merchant. Cost of the trip an hour: 80 dollars, although subsequently cancells the prior order on site. Orders are made only by phone, so no e-mails ! Banning on taking pictures of the square-sand or on the beach. « It's the law », as it was said to us ! Ah, ah, that's a good excuse. We understand that $ 90 image, the case is rather juicy-money for the organizers. I did not know what American Equestrian world there was as rigorous as NASA. In fact, if I were an American, I would have to do action shots ? $ 80 just to watch the departure of my two riders from the dock of the ranch, it’s a bit expensive paid, not really ?
