[RC] I completed my first endurance ride! - Jen

Ok, so it's not much, just a 25 miler.  But I am extremely proud of Willow.  
She is an 11 year old Swedish Gotland broodmare, that I have been working with. 
She competed far above what I conditioned her; I wasn't really ready, but she 
did so well.  

I loved it, and can't wait for the next ride!  We had a few highs and lows.  I 
found out Willow REALLY likes water, and that we need to work more on riding by 
ourselves.  She vetted out with all A's except for a B on gut sounds.  In fact 
she dragged me through the soundness check, still willing to go more.  

Hah, who says ponies can't do it!

If you have time, visit the blog I started to write about my "adventures" with 
Willow.  Easier to load photos and new stories than a website!
