An equestrienne's travel adventures around the planet, or, a traveller's equestrian adventures around the planet (occasionally on foot, sometimes chasing owls, almost always with The Raven). Just Ride - Anywhere!
I am SO glad you decided to do the ride and got your buckle. I hope it was as magical at times as it can be for some of us. (between those moments of asking ourselves what ARE we thinking!)Well done! Well Done!
I just *KNEW* when I saw the raven flying over the Mansfield arena at Robie Park that things were going to go well for you. You and Quinn did AWESOME!!! Congrats to you both! =)
It was great riding with you for the short time I did (I was one of the two riders that you passed near elephant trunk/cougar rock when you were trying to catch up with your friends). Congrats!!!!!Melinda
Merri, I love reading your stories, there are so many times I can commiserate with how you feel :). When I read you were going to do Tevis, I couldn't wait to hear your ride story. You go girl! I'm glad I can live vicariously thru your adventures (and don't have to brave the scary heights myself, lol). Bravo!Cindy (the endurance wannabe :))
cue applause.... congrats... wow... you're my hero(ine)cid and gazi
I was wondering how much recuperation time you'd need before posting up some stories and photos! Can't wait to hear all about your adventure.
And note the HUGE grin! Bravo Merri!
I only found your Blog just before Tevis - instantly loved it, and was rooting for you! Watched some riders pass through at Michigan Bluff & Foresthill but was probably too early to see you (oops, sorry!). HUGE KUDOS for competing and finishing - you have inspired me! Looking forward to more tales.....
