Team 71 - Wilhelm *
My name is Lynn Wilhelm and I'm from Syracuse, NE. Growing up, I was always one of those little girls that wanted a horse or just wanted to ride any horse I saw. Never got one.... About 7-8 years ago, a neighbor got me into riding again. This last year I purchased my very own horse. Actually, I purchased two horses in 2012. The first one and I were not a good fit. He was a bit challenging. The second one that I purchased in April is an 9 year old palomino Missouri Fox Trotter mare named Cassie. She is wonderful!! Sure, she has some marish tendencies, but so do I. We are a great fit and learning on the trail together.
When I'm not riding, I'm busy with my real estate business and being a mom/coach to 2 very active girls that are 11 & 14. My husband and I spend a lot of time on the bleachers watching them. They don't have the horse bug like I did at their age. They would much rather show their pigs at the county fair. You can learn more about us at wilhelmlynn.blogspot.com.
I have two great friends that I hope to ride with a lot this year that are also in the Distance Derby - Team 46 - Auer and Team 64 - Antes.
