Ashlee Bond’s favorite memory from her summer European tour didn’t happen in the show ring.
“Our first day riding the horses in Europe, I was with Kaylen and Richard Spooner and my dad. We were in La Baule, France, and La Baule is right next to the beach, so we took Cristallo and Paco and Casira Z and Cadett to the beach. We went galloping in the ocean, and it was the most amazing experience. We went out quite far in the water because it stays shallow, and we were out there for about an hour. It was the most fun,” she said.
