Along The Divide Trail … (Feb 2017)

Horseback Riding, Running & Cycling

By Deb Peter

deb@auburncoolrealestate.com

 

On this rainy Saturday, as I compile a list of upcoming events, a website appeared I had not encountered before:  www.NevadaDiscoveryRide.com.  The mission of this site is to encourage Wild Horse Adoption through challenging “long rides” or long distance travel by horse.  Samantha, a former U.S. Army journalist, moved to Nevada in 2008 and fell in love with the sight of wild horses.  After learning that many waste away in holding pens, in 2010, she began planning for the 1st Nevada Discovery Ride.  Samantha is now a member of Long Riders Guild (www.LongRidersGuild.com) after completing her 2nd Ride and the required 1000 continuous miles in a single journey by horseback.  This international organization offers membership by invitation only.  You’ll find both sites very informative and inspiring.  The Long Riders’ Guild Academic Foundation is a forum where scientists, poets, authors, historians, soldiers and equestrian experts share wisdom with the public at no direct financial gain.  Samantha is scheduled to talk at the upcoming Horse Expo in Sacramento this June.

 

During a 9 month period in 2016, Jeff Garmire completed the Pacific Crest Trail, the Appalachian Trail and the Continental Divide Trail.  He is one of only five people who have completed the Triple Crown in one year.  On January 7th, he shared his story at the State Theater in Auburn.  A packed house witnessed his recollections still fresh in his mind.  This gentle yet obviously strong young man amplified this challenging journey by campaigning for suicide prevention before, during and now after the expedition.  Follow him on-line at www.freeoutside.com, and look for a book to follow.

Along The Divide Trail … (Feb 2017)

Horseback Riding, Running & Cycling

By Deb Peter

deb@auburncoolrealestate.com

 

On this rainy Saturday, as I compile a list of upcoming events, a website appeared I had not encountered before:  www.NevadaDiscoveryRide.com.  The mission of this site is to encourage Wild Horse Adoption through challenging “long rides” or long distance travel by horse.  Samantha, a former U.S. Army journalist, moved to Nevada in 2008 and fell in love with the sight of wild horses.  After learning that many waste away in holding pens, in 2010, she began planning for the 1st Nevada Discovery Ride.  Samantha is now a member of Long Riders Guild (www.LongRidersGuild.com) after completing her 2nd Ride and the required 1000 continuous miles in a single journey by horseback.  This international organization offers membership by invitation only.  You’ll find both sites very informative and inspiring.  The Long Riders’ Guild Academic Foundation is a forum where scientists, poets, authors, historians, soldiers and equestrian experts share wisdom with the public at no direct financial gain.  Samantha is scheduled to talk at the upcoming Horse Expo in Sacramento this June.

 

During a 9 month period in 2016, Jeff Garmire completed the Pacific Crest Trail, the Appalachian Trail and the Continental Divide Trail.  He is one of only five people who have completed the Triple Crown in one year.  On January 7th, he shared his story at the State Theater in Auburn.  A packed house witnessed his recollections still fresh in his mind.  This gentle yet obviously strong young man amplified this challenging journey by campaigning for suicide prevention before, during and now after the expedition.  Follow him on-line at www.freeoutside.com, and look for a book to follow.
