Once again, we here in the Northern Hemisphere are in the doldrums of winter. Depending on where you live, it is likely some variation on cold, icy, and dark. Your horse misses the green grass. You miss the long daylight hours for afternoon and evening rides. Winter is a bummer. And that’s why it’s time for a virtual vacation.
Some horses would certainly run for the dry sand upon seeing some large sea creatures swim up to them, but these horses are mostly curious. The dolphins seem curious, too, and they spend some time mingling with the horses even though they could very easily swim off into the ocean.
Dolphins are commonly believed to be one of the most intelligent animal species on the planet. You have to wonder what they thought of these big, four-legged creatures splashing into the ocean, and what the horses thought of them.
Enjoy this peaceful interspecies interaction and a virtual day at the beach thanks to Hayfields Racing.

WOW, I think my horses would have probably headed for dry sand! Very cool!
That is so cool!
WOW, but judging how the riders are dressed, it’s a cool day and water is colder! Wouldn’t want to get launched into that cold water! No thank you!
I think if I saw a fin like that coming at me, I’d be out of town! Well at least the water!
Looks like fun, just glad that finn was a dolphin’s!
amazing something to dream about
Looks like fun, but cold water from the way they are dressed! Don’t get dumped!
WOW, but I think I would have thought shark fin!
I would have thought shark, too, Jenny. Looks like fun riding, but they,(the riders) must have known dolphins were there, otherwise, they would have shown fear of sharks.
WOW, I tend to agree with the other two folks, sharks! And that water looks cold for me to be riding into, look how they are dressed. Not looking to get dumped! LOL!
thats so cool!
Looks like a cold water ride. I thought sharks too.
Looks like a chilly ride, and yes sharks could be out there! Not for us!
