Can you imagine waking up knowing that after years of work, you’re about to send 12 riders, over 30 horses, crews, vets, and a film crew to the start line of a 250 mile race over some of the most rugged, inaccessible terrain in the world?
We gathered for a final chat.
It felt like Dad sending us all out into the wild, knowing he’d done everything possible to prepare us.
Overnight, the horses had rubbed their heads on each others butts resulting in some rather odd warpaint.
Our amazing volunteer crew walked our tacked horses up the beach to let them settle a bit while we rode in the trailer.
Clearly we weren’t having ANY fun at all…
Oddly enough, the start was on the beach by a water park and casino. As we pulled in the speakers were playing John Legend – All of Me, which was just totally weird and random. The overcast weather suited Ian, our photographer, just fine. That’s Brent in the photo looking totally hardcore.
AND WE’RE OFF!!!
Into the Wild…
