Team 120 - Long Distance Rider *




Hi all!  Connie Hoge - "Long Distance Rider" - Arlington, Washington.   This will be my second year in the Distance Derby.  I enjoy blogging @ http://hogehomestead.blogspot.com/  - when I'm not in the saddle  :-)
I’ll be riding my American Warmblood mare – Farah, who we’ve owned since she was five & is coming eight this year.  As my only mount, in last season’s Derby – we finished fourth place!  Opinionated, ornery & full of energy – she’s always up for whatever we do.  (Last year I signed up too late for my January miles to count, so this season – I’m ready!)  ☺   We're hoping to attend a couple endurance rides, maybe some CMO competitions & whatever else looks like fun.  Mostly though - we just like being out there - enjoying the scenery, trails, country & company of good friends~
I'm fine, I'm Ridin~
