The crystal blue ocean sparkles under the hot midday sun. As the boat slowly docks. My excitement builds as I step onto the island of Gili Air for the first time. I swing my backpack over my shoulder and am herded onto the dock with the other tourists. Waiting there is a line of ponies and carts ready to take us to our hotels in this little paradise. A beautifully coloured horse carriage and a cute pony catch my attention first on the Gili Islands. But as I move closer I see that the ponies are tiny, no more than 12hh. Each of them is attached to their carts with ill-fitting, sharp straps. Life is not a beach for the ponies of the Gili Islands.
