Mt Adams Endurance Ride and Ride N Tie

Saturday May 15 2010

A gorgeous setting for the 14th annual Mt Adams Endurance ride - 100, 75, 50, and 25 miles, 25 and 12 mile Ride N Tie, and a Trail Ride - outside of Trout Lake, Washington, near the foot of 12,281' Mt Adams.

A good scratching while waiting in the vet line.

He thought about bucking at the start of the 25 mile ride!

A group starting on the 25 miler.

One of the CUTEST KIDS EVER. Garret's 5 years old, and did his first endurance ride with his mom on the 25 miler. Biggest smile plastered on his face all day!

Sherry from Canada.

The Ride N Tie'rs start out on the trail.

Heading out on a loop.

One of the other CUTEST KIDS EVER, and one of the CUTEST PONIES EVER. Clara and Benjamin are doing their first 75 miler!

Cooling Benjamin down at a vet check.

Tanking up before going out on the next loop.

Dennis Summers trotting out 19-year-old Rosie. They ended up winning the 100.

This horse was catching everybody's eye: half Friesian, 1/4 Arabian, 1/4 Quarter horse. He and Nicole finished the 100.

Heading out on another loop.

Nothing better then a good roll at the end of the day!


  1. What beautiful weather for the ride!!!!Now the rain comes.

  2. Little Garrett was having a major meltdown the last loop. Poor Kid was just whacking that pony , kick ,kick, kick.

    His Mom had the patience of Job.

  3. Lovely pictures! How cool to see a non-Arab finish a 100. I know there's lots of them out there, but you don't hear about them as often. :)

  4. I'm really sad that I missed this ride--thanks for the beautiful pictures!

  5. Awesome photos and stories! Those little tykes doing those lon rides gives me hope that maybe I could do that one day, too!

    I want to know more about this ride n tie.
    Love that Friesian/Arabian/QH. Stunning!

    Yay for Rosie!
