Thank you for your interest in the Western Distance Riders Alliance. I support all aspects of distance riding and I have ridden many miles in many different events. I have over 10,000 AERC miles and I have ridden 100s. I have finished Tevis, the Big Horn 100, the Vermont 100, the AERC National Championship 100, and others. I have raced and I have ridden to finish. I have completed multi-day rides, epic cross country rides, ride and tie, mounted orienteering, and more. I rode across the west with two horses on the Pony Express Trail as part of the 2011 XP. But even more than those rides and those miles, I support cooperation. Distance riding is so much more than any one venue, club, or organization. I support the WDRA because the WDRA is an alliance of all distance riders offering riders and ride managers a way to expand their participation in distance riding, a way for riders and ride managers to experiment with new event formats, a way for us to join together, and a way for all distance riders and distance horses to be recognized for their accomplishments. I hope to meet you and your horse out on the trails together so we can all Ride On!
