Team 102 - Grace *
Team Grace from Michigan includes a 9 year old Fjord Quarter Cross named Idunn Grace (pronounced E dun) and rider Heather Grace. Occasionally our Australian Shepard, Wilson joins us on trail too.
We are grateful for every day we get to spend hanging out, doing ground work, in the saddle or driving!
2012 was our first year together as this is my first horse so we tracked our progress together through FaceBook & hours on our calendar. 2013 was our first Distance Derby year riding 1067.75 Miles & we are hooked!
The Derby really is that extra push to make your pony even more of a priority & all that riding improved our partnership so much we learned to confidently ride out SOLO & learned to drive. Those skills probably would not have developed so quickly without the Derby's encouragement!
Can't wait to see what 2014 brings!
Wishing all fellow riders a safe, mutually respectful & joyful 2014 with your equine partners!
