Team 25 - Oregon Cowgirl





Hi!  My name is Jean and my team mate is Jango.  He  came into my life 4 years ago as a way to find happiness and peace after struggling with my mother's cancer and death.  He is a true medicine horse.  We ride whenever we can here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

    1. Welcome, Jean! I hope to ride in the Portland area in 2014 (probably April). The Dalmatian Club of America will have a field trial there, & they are currently looking for a location & rental horses. Maybe we will meet then!

  17. Well,8 weeks until my first planned endurance ride. Time to step it up. Plus Jango is way overweight. I could stand to lose 5 or 10 lbs. myself. Diet & exercise plan is in the works.We start today!

  25. Life has been pretty busy. I keep riding but it's all little short spurts. Still haven't had 1 full day to just haul out to the hills. oh well-I do enjoy my after work outings and the weather is gorgeous. This week spotted: deer,coyote,osprey and heron. Got a new pair of riding pants-Kerrits bootcut with a long leg patch...I really like em.

  28. Went out of town to visit my father then caught some vicious URI. Yuck. Did manage 1 ride in between all that.

    p.s. I do promise to put in the miles once my other life slows down a little :)

  29. Okay so I was sick for 2 1/2 weeks!!
    I will give the miles for this past week because I was playing catch up. But I am totally bummed- I LOST MY GPS!! I can't do the derby without it and I'm not ready to lay down another $100 for a new one at the moment. I don't own a smartphone. Anyone have a great cheap option for counting miles??

  30. Sorry about your gps. Look on Craig's list forvavused one. Or eBay. Might want to ask Diane to post on DD site that you are looking for one.

  31. My smart phone isn't so smart. Should say "for a used one."

  37. Hi-
    I was looking at the leaderboard and I noticed my total is from my June 15th entry. Looks like my mileage from last week didn't get tallied in and there is this weeks new total. Hope those miles make it in!
    Thanks.

  38. I have all your miles logged. You probably posted your miles after I posted the leaderboard.

    I've also added additional miles for this week as of July 27 for a ytd total of 219.32
    Thanks.
