Team 98 - Gramsgoneriding

My name is Lynn Webster and I live in Monroe, Washington. I have two horses, one is Sophie (19), Morgan/Quarter Horse and Bizy Bee (11), Quarter Horse. I love riding my horses on trails with good friends. The mares and I have done CMO's, prize rides, obstacle clinics, endurance rides, gaming, barrels and horse camping just to name a few.
In 2013 I started keeping track of my miles because of my friend and riding partner, Connie Hoge, that joined the Distance Derby last January. I was surprised that I rode over 1100 miles which was split between the two girls.
I am not sure what is in store for me this year, but if I know Connie she will have me out there doing lots of miles.
A nice trail ride for us is at least 20 miles!
