I am heading out tomorrow to go to Ottawa. It’s the first leg of the journey with Team Luba.
We are going to the North American Endurance Team Challenge (NAETC), which is an FEI competition being held at Black Prong Equestrian Center in Florida. It’s a 160 km (100 mile) endurance ride. December 13th. My friend Nancy is riding her flea-bitten grey Arab mare, Serious Moonlight (Luba), and Kara and I are going along to act as pit crew (better known as grooms in FEI-land).
It’s amazing how many of our local riders are heading down to this particular ride. We actually have twelve riders from Canada East going, as well as three from Canada West (and that’s a very LONG way to travel from Western Canada!!). And of course all those riders have grooms as well. So there will be quite a pack of us.
Here are the Canadian riders (and horses where I know them):
Wendy Benns – (Flirt With Fyre)
Monica Grundmann (Excalibur Legend)
Wendy MacCoubrey (Furion)
Stephanie McLeod (Amber Kiera)
Dessia Miller (Cognac Amberfyre)
Michelle Watling (Klien)
Emma Webb (CWM Felen Zillary)
Kim Woolley (Shakka Khan)
Nancy Zukewich (Serious Moonlight)
I hope we can get an internet connection. If so, I’m going to try to post updates and photos throughout the week.
I am looking forward to WARM WEATHER!!!!
