Saturday was the Goethe Challenge Endurance Ride held in the beautiful Goethe Forest near Ocala, Florida. There were more than 150 horses participating in this annual event. Riders competed at 100, 75, 50 and 25 mile distances.
Congratulations to everyone who participated! As they say, "it takes a village," and a lot of work goes into holding a great ride. There are the riders, the horses, the vets, the ride managers, the volunteers, the crews, the families, the vendors - and lots more that all come together to make every ride awesome.
I also enjoyed the company of friends Gayle King (finished 23rd), Caren Stauffer and Kelly Hersey. Thanks for the companionship, support and the fun. I'm looking forward to our next ride!
