Here are our Insta-shots – duly colour filtered!
Once we were ‘post-ready’, our escorts were rather surprised that we wanted to go again, (EVEN though we already had the money shots) purely for the love of the gallop! Actually the staff were fab. Galloping technically wasn’t allowed by the stable’s owner (most punters predominantly stand and pose in the shallow surf), but seeing that we actually loved the horses and the riding, they let rip, and cheered us on.
The horses got seriously excited, and Bella in true Beanie style was completely unstoppable:
Squiggler was brave in the face of her speed demon:
James encouraged his steed out of its leisurely cruise into overdrive, and mine frothed in the foamy waves and generally looked beautiful (when she wasn’t going mental at being held back to last-to-go in the galloping order!):
We cruised through Chang Gu on the way home to check out the scene (having heard much), and grab a late lunch at a popular beach club. It was on a spectacular setting on the coast line, and served a very decent grilled fish (and some sausages!). The bathrooms were somewhat ‘hose-down’ and it was clearly a big party venue by night that cleaned up just enough by day to pull the punters in for the lunch shift before picking up the pace again at sunset.
Another high adrenaline day for Monicofamilytravels (those horses were, yet again, entirely unstoppable!!)
