Team 36 - Rifle
Rifle is a 8 year old arab-quarter horse cross I’ve had for just a year. I’m having a blast exposing him to as many weird experiences as I can…. The well rounded horse is a happy horse!
So far we’ve done competitive mounted orienteering, competitive trail, obstacle challenges, dressage lessons, ground driving and endurance. Next year looking at trying our hand at cows, more endurance, and maybe some gaming. And of course, miles and miles of trail. It’s been very fun exposing Rifle the former Utah desert pony to the interesting challenges of being an urban pony near Seattle, WA. (baby strollers and Christmas lawn decorations are especially interesting). Looking forward to showing him the beach!
When we’re not riding, Rifle is hanging with his pals in the pasture while I’m working as a cancer scientist (best day job ever) and volunteering at SAFE, a local horse rescue.
Looking forward to seeing the mile accrue….
PS… the photo was on our test drive…. I flew out to Utah and got to ride this awesome horse for a week in the snow and then to the Moab desert. How cool is that?!
