While she spent the day taking photos of many horses and riders, a few running through the surf caught her attention, she said.

“All of a sudden out of the corner of my eye were these young women frolicking through the ocean kicking up the surf and sand with their horses running at full steam ahead!” she said. “Now, that's my kind of fun and action!”

Ballard's picture was also taken on the same day as the stand-off between horse riders and police at the beach. Review the full story, here.
