Team 109 - Moonlight Mustangs *
My name is April Sanders. I live in the cute little town of LeRoy, KS. Horses (mustangs) are my all time passion. I ride every spare moment and when not riding I am training my other mustangs.
When I heard about this DD 2013 of recording my miles and time in the saddle, I knew I needed to sign up. My goal is to ride and have fun recording the actually miles I ride.
Nevada is my 16yo mustang mare who will be my main mount. We have ridden many trails, competed in rides, rode parades, and rode with a mounted drill team. Learning and trusting each other has been a rewarding adventure. My husbands 9yo gelding will get a few rides as well and I have a little mustang pony under saddle training. I look forward to getting a few rides in on her this summer.
Nevada and I love our weekend camping, trailriding and especially the moonlight rides with our friends. Those moonlight rides are awesome and I always wear a helmet during those night rides for safety.
In 2012 there was a "Ride to Remember" to help raise funds for a veteran's therapuetic riding center in NM, and we continued the ride for the whole month of November. For 30 days I rode a horse to honor our veterans. Nevada and I even rode our 5 miles into town to cast our vote.
I love riding my mustang Nevada Girl and look forward to recording how many miles we can actually ride together. The Moonlight Mustangs, 48 and doing great.
