#vacation was awesome. I grew up going to Chincoteague and Assateague island every summer with my family and have the best memories of those trips. My husband grew up in Florida and doesn't understand beach vacations so I figured while he was gone was my time to do it. It has been my dream to take my kids there one day so my 2 younger sisters came with me and it was pretty much a perfect trip filled with sun, beach, ice cream and wild pony sightings. 🐴 I hate that summer is coming to an end but this was a pretty great way to finish it off. Came home to teacher assignments in the mail for the kids. Sigh. .
Life is really better at the beach. Misty of Chincoteague was one of my favorite books as a child and the island itself is just as magical. 🐴
Chincoteague is a relaxing beach town with beautiful nature preserves, wild ponies, and the best ice cream I’ve ever had at @islandcreameryva - I dream of it. 🍦
Where is your favorite beach? 🏖
So I suddenly got nostalgic. Last summer I spent almost three months living in Chincoteague, VA, to take summer courses at Chincoteague Bay Field Station. I moved away from the home and family I've been with my entire life and got to experience a different way of living. It was eye opening for me. And I'm grateful for the experience, even if I complained about it all the time beforehand😂 These two pictures are class photos of two of the three courses (the last one only had six students and we never took a class photo) that I had taken. I honestly miss it.
Hi!! I am so excited to show you one of my favorite places on earth - Chincoteague, Virginia ☀️🐚🌊 My family and I have spent a week here every year for the last 17 years & it’s become one of my homes away from home 🏡
Chincoteague is mainly known for having wild horses roaming around the island, a nature reserve that leads to a peaceful beach and the cutest fishing town - it is one of the most relaxing and charming places I’ve ever been to! I hope you love it as much as I do 🥰🐎🏖

"Hey Jen, I am going to get my baby boi, you can take over my work too right?"
"Yeah sure, It'll be busy but I can make it work, you are back tomorrow right?" I say. "Yes, I'll stay the night and drive back with Batman tomorrow." Rose says. "Allright! See you tomorrow and drive safe! Can you text me when you arrive?"
"Sure, see you!" Rose says, and then goes to get her old horse from the Netherlands. "Well, lets get to work then.." A busy, busy day at @old_stormgarden. Doing all the trailrides, and after that doing the private lessons too.. Exhausting. I'll be happy when I am in bed tonight. Oh by the way, this is a 11 year old girl, Em, and she rides here now already for a while. I have been giving her lessons and now I thought we could do some cavalettis! It is very fun to teach her new things, as she always does her very best and wants to be an eventer too! She's not ready yet to be out on our XC course, but we are slowly starting for her to get the feeling of jumping! Chicken is the perfect pony for her, challenging but not too much. I love teaching her!
After this I went for dinner and then do my own horses, first Honey (just some dressage), then Ezzie we went for jumping this time. And after that I had to do Espejo.. I want for him to slowly get the feeling of lunging, but he can't seem to understand that quite well. When I let him walk around, he'll just run for his life and giving hugee bucks, stamping in the sand ect, ect.. I don't know what to do anymore with him.. He keeps doing this kinda shit when I am working with him. Maybe it is stallion behaviour but I don't tolerate it..
