This will be my first Distance Derby and I was refereed here by my friend who participated last year. My goal is to be in the top 50% this year since this is my first year in the running. I was drawn in by the friendly competition and the amazing price...aka FREE ha-ha.
My main mount is Rocky a 8 year old Mustang/QH mix. He has been with me for the past 3 years now and we have been through a lot together and I trust him. My second mount is Storm a 7 year old Tennessee Walker that I started just this past summer. She is very green, but her personality is that of a old timer, been there, done that kind of horse. My goal is to put many miles on Storm this year and to get Rocky back in shape and build a even stronger bond between my horses and I.
I am curious to see where we end up this year and look forward to seeing how many miles everyone else racks up. Best of Luck to everyone!!
