My name is Shelly Henderson. I'm live north of Sioux City IA.
The saddle is the place I dream about and the place I put myself every chance I get. I've decided to join the Distance Derby (thanks to Tammy) because I would like to see the amount of miles I travel in a year. This is a challenge for myself to not only ride every chance I get, but to put more time in on my rides. My horses are my life. We have several horses (my other half says too many), 9 horses & 1 mule. Each one has their own personality. I've learned from each & every one of my horses, good or bad. I look at each one & realize the progress I've made & the progress I need to make in my Horsemanship journey.
My adventures lead me to nurmous places... we trail ride locally & take a few vacation a year. We try to hit new areas each year. We've been to the Black Hills, Colorado, Missouri & Arkansas. It's hard to pick my favorite, can you? We also compete in local events as well... ranch sorting, trail challenges & ranch horse competitions. I gladly except the challenge of the Distance Derby. This will be a new journey for me & I'm excited to participate. Along with meeting more horse people along the way.
Happy Trails, Shelly Henderson
PS A big thank you to Tammy for creating this event, for being active in local riding & writing the stories about her adventures. Her stories have inspired me. Along with all the information she shares about local rides and trail. Thank You Tammy.
