Team 7 - Shoofly **
This is my third year to participate in the Distance Derby. I set personal goals, but "winning the race" is never one of them. As a trail rider who enjoys gazing at nature and stopping to look closer at wildflowers and pretty rocks I don't travel fast enough to be a competitor here, but I do enjoy tracking my miles, as well as my hours and speed. Tracking my rides with a GPS is such a habit now I would feel cheated to come to the end of a ride without any stats to view!
Our horses are Jake (22yo palomino QH gelding), Cooper (18yo gray QH gelding), and Bravo (coming 4yo green-broke Morgan gelding). Adding a youngster to our herd has been fun, it makes for a different type of ride and new challenges. As always, my 2014 goal includes visiting new trails and seeing new places and new fauna and flora, and meeting fellow trail riders.
Happy trails to us all!
2012 / 470.4 Miles / 24th Place
2013 / 400.86 miles / 45th place
