For four sun-drenched days in southern California, exhibitors showed their American Quarter Horses with the scent of the ocean in their noses.

The Sun and Surf Circuit in Del Mar offers six shows in four days, a big draw for those who want a little beach time to go with their saddle time. The Del Mar Horsepark where the competition takes place is just blocks from the Pacific Ocean, and the show ends at dusk every day, which allowed plenty of opportunities to enjoy arena sand and beach sand during the show May 15-18.

Here are a few Journal photos from the show.
