By Cathy Leddy from Cascade Gold Akhal-Teke;
We just got back from our weekend at the Klickitat Endurance ride in Glenwood WA. I rode Galen in the limited distance ride on Saturday, along with Monica on Danny (Magdan) and Shannon Mayfield on Octopelle. It was supposed to be a 25 mile ride, but it turned out to be just a tad longer (37 miles!) Happily, the ride management changed the completions to a 35 mile ride. I top tenned (10th place), although I didn’t ask my placing when I finished, so I didn’t show for best condition. Monica and Shannon completed the ride and we all enjoyed the lovely scenery, exciting water crossings, great volunteers and fun atmosphere. We stayed an extra day to help our friend Susan who rode on Sunday also and did lots of socializing. We had lots of questions about our horses and Tekes in general, so possibly we’ll see more and more Tekes on endurance rides in the future.
