Team 19 - Mischief

mischief

 

My name is Katja Sebestyen and I currently live in Omaha, Nebraska.  Since I spend time with my horse Duncan on an almost daily basis, I thought that signing up for the Distance Derby would be a great motivator to log as many miles as possible on horseback this coming year.

I just got Duncan in April of 2012, and he is my first horse ever.  I was lucky enough to be able to be around horses when I was very little, but I never had the opportunity to own a horse or even ride until now.  Riding and owning a horse has been a childhood dream... an it has been an amazing "dream-come-true" thus far.  Duncan is a 5-year old QH (?) Buckskin and he certainly acts his age most of the time -- he loves to play!  

Happy riding! Good luck to everyone, and may the best team win! :-)

  3. Fun, fun, fun, though we sure get chipped on mileage riding in circles in a small arena! There is no way we only rode 0.38 in 26 minutes, including trotts and lopes, but that's what the GPS said, so here we go :-)

  5. Just switched barns on 2/1! First ride in new arena, and what a difference it makes to ride in a bigger place. Now we are actually getting somewhere! Except Duncan seemed in pain/sore, so we had to quit prematurely...
