My name is Barry Cole. We live southwest of Topeka Kansas in Eskridge. I followed the 2012 derby last year and it looks like a fun way to keep track of our conditioning and ride miles so I thought I'd sign up.
Linda, my wife, and I host a couple of endurance rides every year and volunteer or ride in several others. I completed my first 50 mile endurance ride in 1971 and have been hooked on trail riding ever since.
I'll mostly be riding my favorite mare, Hattie, an Anglo-Arab. I have a two or three other young horses that I'm starting that will be getting some miles as we begin to condition them. Like many other folks with horses we're horsepoor, but life is good!
