- My name is Natalie Kilpatrick and this is my first year in the Distance Derby. I'm relatively new to riding, I still consider myself a beginner, but am learning more every day.
- My horse, Scooter (APHA "Luckys Wild Rose") is a 1995 Sabino Chestnut Paint Horse Mare who I began free leasing in August of 2012. She is pregnant with her fourth and final foal due in March. After the foal is born and weaned I will buy Scooter and we'll begin the rest of our lives together.
- I would love to get more serious with Competitive Trail Riding but my lack of owning a horse trailer is stopping me at the moment. I board Scooter within a few miles of Lake Cunningham so we spend a lot of our time on the trails in the surrounding area.
- We won't be starting out 2013 strong, but we hope to finish out with a bang!
- We also have a blog at www.luckyswildrose.com
PLEASE NOTE: Since Scooter will be kept home from the trails more than expected January through May we may not be sending in any miles, this doesn't mean that we aren't participating, she's just out of commission. Once the foal is born we'll start running up miles again and I'll begin submitting data. If I happen to hop on another horse for some miles I'll definitely be submitting those!
