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! :-)
