There’s no sight quite as majestic as horses on the beach in front of the mighty ocean. That goes double when the horse is an impressive draft horse, like the equines of Express Clydesdales.
Fortunately, this handler held on and managed to keep his equine charge from swimming off to the islands while also managing not to inhale a lung or two full of saltwater. Note the, “Hey, bud. You okay?” look the horse gives his human friend around the 1:25 mark in the video.
Props to the crew involved in this day at the beach for doing what it takes to get the shot. We’re glad everyone made it through relatively unharmed.
