A small group of women from Gastonia, NC took advantage of a perfect day to go riding horses Friday morning at Hunting Island State Park.  One of the riders said they come to Hunting Island every year at this time because it's the closest beach where they can ride. The beach is open to horseback riding from from December 1st through February 28th.
