Trail Log: 05-20-2017

  • Trail: Kane Springs – Owyhee Desert. An IMO ride
  • Miles: 21.1
  • Ave speed: 4.7
  • Max speed: 13.9
  • Riders: Self – Jones – Dusty “Circle 4”
  • Horses: Jack – Shooter – Raycine
  • Dogs: Shade – Hank – Dealer – Savannah

Notes: It was quite the adventure. Dusty had open heart surgery 9 weeks prior to the ride. He’d been riding a few times since surgery – 5 or 6 miles max. We ended up riding 21.1 miles on the first hot day of the year. Raycine tied up due to dehydration. We got her through it and  Dusty back to camp without further incident and still ended up with 3rd place! We would have taken second if we had not helped another team heading in the wrong direction. Out of 8 teams, only 3, including ours,  found all the markers… and we were taking it easy! We Rock… 🙂
