Joe Long put up an offer on ridecamp for someone to ride his seasoned
horse Sanshra with him while he took his young horse, Vie, on his first
50. I emailed him, taking him up on that offer if he couldn't find a
junior. I'm so glad I did! I had so much fun. Sanshra is an amazing
horse, so easy to get along with. So was Joe for that matter--& a fine
singer out on the trail to boot. I had an absolute blast!

THANK YOU to ride management & vets!
THANK YOU to Joe Long for letting me ride your horse!

Back at'cha!  Thank you for taking such good care of Sanshra.  I
thoroughly enjoyed riding with you.

For the rest of you folks -- Ft. Meade is a great ride, it was my first
time there but I loved it.  I was pleasantly surprised at how well Via
did on his first 50, and how strong he was at the end.  He lost both
front shoes on the third leg of the ride (that's another story), and we
lost over 30 minutes at the gate & go while I had shoes put on (I gotta
get easyboots that fit him).  We didn't push the horses on the last leg,
just bopped along, but still caught those who passed us in the gate &
go.  Marirose and I ran in the last 3/4 of a mile and Via still
recovered quickly.  I think I have a keeper here.

A big Thank You from me as well to the ride management, vets and volunteers.

Joe Long  aka ChipRider
