The Western States Trail Foundation with the help of Georgetown Divide residents Leigh Bacco, Matt Scribner and Diane and Bill Johnson recently presented a most memorable evening with Julie Suhr at the Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn. Julie, just a kid in her 80’s, has inspired athletes young and old with her everlasting spirit. In 1964, she rode her first Tevis Cup 100 Miles in One Day Ride. And now when asked what she does to stay in condition, she replies with: “nothing other than feeding 5 horses, cleaning their stalls, and riding 3 days per week”. Her second book just out, “… but it wasn’t the horses fault”, will keep you laughing and smiling as she shares changes in the sport of endurance riding from earlier years to present, and personal stories of horses and folks she’s known.
