Team 18 - Luvriden Jordan - River

Hi!  This is Team Luvriden Jordan - River.  My KMSH mare, Jordan, and I have been together for 8 years.  She is now 13 years old and we have really grown together as a horse and rider team.  She is my first horse  and I am blessed to have her.  I now also have a really sweet 6 year old Spotted Saddle horse gelding (we think, he is an adopted rescue) that I am now riding named River.

We love to trail ride and have done a few CTR rides and hope to do a few more this year. My husband, daughter and I recently moved from NW Iowa to the Lincoln, Nebraska area and I am enjoying riding all the new trails.  I am also blessed with a dear husband who supports and encourages my horsey habit.  See ya on the trail :-)
