About Me:
I love riding my horses with my family. I started distance riding in 1996 with NATRC and moved into endurance in 2001 with the encouragement of Lynne Glazer (ok so she called me and told me she was transfering my 25 mile entry to the 50 cause according to her my horse was not going to even break a sweat on the 25) I met Lynne and fellow endurance rider, Jim Kinder out on a conditioning ride 8 years ago . Lynne also put on the Norco Riverdance Ride. My husband Eugene started out crewing and volunteering at rides.Now my husband competes in endurance with me. Our daughter Brianna started endurance the fall of 2008 with her mare JC Arizona Star which she did all the conditioning and training of. Our son Kevin also rides and is contemplating riding in a ride someday, right now he is a Awesome Crew for me and Bee. I love going into tack stores and hate the shopping malls. I like to camp, fish, and read books. I'm more of an outdoorsy kinda gal. The June Cleaver dress,pearls, and heels are NOT for me :>)

My daughter and I had a wonderful time at the Git-R-Done ride on April11th. Brianna finished in 12th place and I finished in 13th. Not to shabby for my Junior rider :>). The ride management and volunteers did a fantastic job with this ride. This was my daughter's 2nd. endurance ride and she said she had so much fun. We had a great time looking for blue plastic Kiddie Pools randomly scattered throughout the desert( desert-treasure). There was plenty of food and water at all stops along the… Continue

Well we've been back home a little over a week and we had such a good time at this ride. The McCrary Family and all their Volunteers did such a terrific job this was a gorgeous ride, even through the Poison Oak Forrests..lol I had the misfortune of getting stung by a bee early in the morning on my upper thigh, and it hurt like heck (think being stabbed by a needle followed by a burning sensation), Poor Diva was stung on her throatlatch area, but she was fine. I had to take a Benadryl because I… Continue

That's so scary to have fires so close. It's unbelievable how quickly they spread and how hot they get with what seems like so little fuel, just a little dry grass and next thing a whole neighborhood is burned to the ground. It's time for rain.

Good to hear that your new shoer is working out.

Keep safe, Kathy

Keep safe!

Like Jaime Kerr said "shit happens" He was referring mostly to the horse that had to go to the clinic mid-day (the front runner) and by morning after 60 liters of fluids was still not improved. Markova only had a sore girth area, no open wounds, so I'm good with it. Andy wants me to plan on Tevis with him next year, and has mentioned that VC100 would be fun to do again. So, maybe. It was tough on me too though, the first time I've gotten dehydrated on a ride, felt like I had the flu all day, even though I drank about 48 oz each 25 miles. I almost could not have drank more, but it still wasn't enough with the wind sucking the fluids out so quickly. How about you?

Worse completion rate ever, I think! 18 of 42 riders completed, I was not one of them. Markova had sore girth area from all the up & down hills and so at 77 miles had poor CRI although initially pulsed down quickly. Everything else was great. He looks like he only had a stroll in the park this morning though, in very good shape. The weather was not hot, there was cloud cover, but lots of wind which caused dehydration in humans, so probably horses too and contributed to poor completion. I don't think that had anything to do with Markova's CRI because he had no other signs of distress, other than sore girth area. Maybe next year...

No, Walker was lame, can't remember where. Yes, it sure is hard to condition with kids in school, but time flies...

I'd like to ride Swanton again, too. It was fun and a lifesaver having you and Jill to ride with.

I only got one sting at Swanton, not too bad. I am worried about having to take Benedryl at VC since I have to stay alert as I ride at night. Someone, somewhere, said to put it directly on the stings, I think I'll try that IF we get attacked.

the weather should be just about perfect this year. I'll let you know how it goes. I'll be happy if I just complete AND avoid the yellow jackets in the rocky creek bed that I was warned about!

Boy, I have the hardest time using my-endurance. I just get lost everytime I come here, really feel inept. Seems like it used to be easier, same with facebook. Maybe it's just me!

Anyway, good luck with Diva's hooves. It is so frustrating to watch the hooves get worse under a professional's care. That's why I finally pulled the shoes off Storm & Shadow (Sonny & Paloma were were already barefoot). It shouldn't take long for the hoof to shape up with better care.

It just reminded me that someone asked about where to buy boots up here, now I can't remember who or on what forum they were (:<(

I'd actually planned on riding the NC, but since I'm riding Andy's horse, he wanted me to do the VC100 instead. I don't mind though, I've never done the VC ride, so it'll be a new experience.

Take care,

Hi Renee,
We're all well and safe. Both Dan's place and mine are about 4 miles north of the fire, although it looked like it was in in the river canyon directly across the road from me. Dan is about a mile "as the crow flies' across the river from me. Kathie Ford and I along with a few other, evacuated Dawn Simas, but the fire was stopped about a half mile from her home. Jim's co-worker lost his home, there was not much warning and most people didn't get to take things out, just had to run because it started so close and spread so quickly.

Your area is not near the fires, is it? These annual fires are so devastating. I wish there was some good time of the year to have controlled fires without any fear of them getting out of control. Take care and tell Gene to keep safe, from the fires and the looters!

Sonny is healing well, is now allowed to run in a bigger pasture with his buddy, Storm. I'll let him have at least 2 or 3 months longer off, then we'll see how it goes. I have Shaide, Paloma and Shadow to ride, and Andy's horse, Markova too. I'm doing both days at Camp Far West on Markova and possibly VC100, if all goes well.

Good luck with the shoeing. I wish horses' hooves would be self maintaining and not need shoes...wouldn't that be wonderful!!!

Take care and be safe,
