The Great Distance Derby!

1Im always looking for ways to meet new people. And meeting new “horsey” friends is always a plus. So I started a new adventure for 2014. Im participating in the 2014 Distance Derby. It is a virtual competition where riders GPS the miles they log in the saddle and compete with other horse back riders across the country. There are around 130 riders in the competition. I thought it would be fun to see how many miles I log in the saddle during a 12 month period. And what more fun to do it with others that share my same interests! There are a few rules for the competition but the main one is to be sure to set a GPS when you start riding, and record those miles within a few days. There were a few times my GPS didnt record miles and another time I forgot to set it, so no miles those days. The days I get home with a little daylight left are great opportunities to log some miles!

Here are a few pictures from a few rides so far in January!
