My name is Gina Schlater and I have been waiting for this year to start so I could join the derby! My horse goals from last year were simple, but due to "real life", I was unable to reach them. I want to be able to hitch my team, drive to Pawnee lake (it's about 7 miles from where I live) on a Friday afternoon, set up camp and ride the trail at least twice before heading home on Sunday morning! I willingly admit I don't do much winter riding, but hopefully, being in the derby will encourage me to do more riding and driving year round. I have a team of Percheron's, Jingles and Jade, and a Norwegian Fjord, Lyder.
