Friday September 23 2011
I'm in Greenville, California for the North American Endurance Team Challenge. Should be a good 100-mile ride tomorrow - some of the country's (and Canada's) top rides and horses.
Here are a few shots from this morning's Vet In:
Up top that's Mountain team's Doug Swingley with Pal of Mine.
Caroline from Sweden, riding Doug Swingley's horse National Security. She's thrilled to be here!
Central's Jan Worthington and Golden Lightning, my sentimental favorites! They're the only horse and rider team I know who have been struck by lightning! (see the story link). They are hoping modestly for a Top Ten finish, but they are quite capable of more than that.
Central's Cici Butler Stasiuk and her husband Jason and DJB Cytron Kon JMS. I love Cici! She's always smiling and up and joyful, full of life, even when she doesn't win, but especially when she wins!
Radu Ciubuc, riding for Romania
Mountain team's Sue Hedgecock and Aireagle
Pacific South Team... I think this is Nicole Smith and Ravenwood Shahbar
Pacific South Team.. another team member
