Kerry Greear and Hawk finished 2nd place overall at the five day Ft. Schellbourne XP event. Hawk was fitted with traditional EasyBoots. Congrats to Kerry and Hawk and the impressive five days on the trail. Completing five days in a row is such a great accomplishment for horse and rider.
A short update from Kerry.
"Dorothy Sue Phillips and I had talked about riding at Ft. Schellbourne for three years; but the 1900 miles round trip had directed us to Ft. Howes instead. We talked about numbers being down this year at rides and that it could be the last opportunity to do this ride. So, even though we had finished two 50s over Memorial Day weekend, we headed to Nevada the following Saturday. My goals for the ride were to finish, help Dorothy Sue finish, and enjoy the trail while learning more about the history of the area. This was a gorgeous ride with beautiful flowers, vistas, and land that told a story of struggles and achievements. Although there were many tough climbs, each day many miles allowed horses to get out and move. Hawk especially loved trotting through the twists and turns through the trees. How lucky we are to be able to enjoy our equine and human friends on these wonderful, historic trails!"
