We finished next to last. BUT we finished!
The pic below is with my friend Karen riding my Missouri Fox trotter "RED" at our 2nd LD. This ride was the FORT VALLEY ride in Fort Valley, VA and is considered a very technical ride. It is one of three Rides that the OLD DOMINION 100 puts on yearly. It was her first ride. Every year the Old Dominion raffles an arab=some of which have won the TEVIS. My friend Karen managed to win the raffle and now has her own endurance bred arab.
As maybe you can tell it was quite cloudy and the spots on the pic are spots of rain at 7 a.m. It poured rain for the whole ride, but it was so much fun. Despite the mud we finished well in the middle of the pack.
