[RC] Hello (fwd) - Michelle Kendrick

I'm new to the group, just getting in to endurance riding.  I have two
horses currently a 19 year old arab, who is ridden mostly by my husband
and 13 year old daughter  and then I have my black thoroughbred, Elvis.
He is five and an off the track horse, and is just getting to the point
that I can trust him on just about anything on the trail.  (this is after
many a battle, a coaxing, a natural horseman rub, a hissy hit, an ad in
dreamhorse to sell him).  We've done 20 milers this summer and he has
crossed rivers, long weird bridges over gullies; he's even sorted cows a
couple of times!  (shoulda seen the looks the quarter horse folks gave me
when i brought my 16 hand skitty horse in with the cows).

I've ridden western pleasure and show - my entire conscious life.  I love
the trails, but miss competing, so I'm looking forward to endurance
riding.  I know Thoroughbreds are not the most popular choice, but I think
he'll give it his all.

I've been following this list for sometime now, and just bought an
australian endurance saddle for Elvis.  We hope to be in a fall 25 miler
to start with.

I live in Oregon and board near portland, by Powell Butte.  I would love
to have a mentor or someone near by to ride with.
