Team 130 - Nyx
My name is Augusta Schubert, and this is my horse, Nyx, an 8 year old grade mare I have had since my junior year in high school. I've been riding since I was old enough to hold on; my dad jokes that his cow horse was my first babysitter. I spend nearly every spare moment I have on horseback, and I know I've put a lot of miles on my old saddle! Together Nyx and I have overcome every obstacle in our path, and when I am on her back, I know there's nothing that can hold me back. When I read about the Distance Derby in the North Platte Telegraph I knew I had to give it a try. I mostly ride solo, since my 'horsey' friends are spread far and wide, but if anybody finds themselves in the northern Sandhills of Nebraska I'd love to show you my favorite trails!
