The 1998 TIMBERON RIDE was a great success and the Eiland Family wishes
to thank riders, crews, Vets and the residents of Timberon, NM for making
this the best TIMBERON RIDE yet.

We had ninety different riders this year and 32 that rode their horses
all five days of the 275 mile endurance ride.  The trails were
challenging, very pretty (even though NM was suffering from a lack of
rain - at least for the 1st two days of the ride, anyways) and full of
wildlife.  About 15 riders saw bear on various days of the ride, most saw
elk, wild turkey,  and deer were like rabbits.  Chuckwagon meals were
available in Base Camp every night for a very nominal fee.  We had not
done this before, but it was so well accepted that it will become a
fixture in future years.  The Awards Banquet was held in the beautiful
Timberon Lodge located across from Base Camp.  Most of the riders and
crews took advantage of the swimming pool that was across from Base Camp,
and showers were available from noon thru 7 pm at the pool.  Nearly every
rental unit in Timberon was occupied by someone from the ride.  Drs.
Barney Fleming, Robbie Schwyzer, and Vanessa Olsen did a superb job of
working the ride, helping teams to make it thru each day...we had the
usual lameness, but no horses required any drastic treatments, which says
much for the horsemanship of our riders.

The following riders finished all five days on the horses they started
