Team 37 - Gypsy Runner



My name is Kerri Ross and I am really excited to do this. I have 4 yr Palimino rescue mare that I will be using for the most part. My second Horse is a Friesian gelding that is a 3 yr old and barely started. I also have a morgan mare that I have free leased out for a yr. And my son has a blaze faced paint.  
I am a single mom of two wonderful kids. I am also owned by 5 dogs that have come through the North Platte Animal Shelter where I work as Supervisor of Animal Control. I also have a cat and two birds and my daughter has a gecko.  I joined to motivate myself to ride more as that is my biggest passion and fun in life.
Hope to get to meet some of you at some trail rides through out the year!

  1. I am trying to get a GPS wristwatch but there are so much info out there- I need as cheap and a simple one as possible- lol

    1. Many of us who use wrist watch GPS use the Garmin Foretrex 301. Its pretty easy to operate and probably one of the lower priced Garmin models. It has all the functionality for speed and distance as well as tracking, way points and other items you would find handy on the trails. Runs around $130 new. There are also 201, 401, and 501 of the same model that go up in price.
      http://www.amazon.com/Garmin-Foretrex-301-Waterproof-Hiking/dp/B002EOULAE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1357076732&sr=8-1&keywords=garmin+foretrex+301+gps

      The Garmin eTrex handheld model is basically the same but a little less expensive ($98 at Walmart). It comes with a strap that you can put around your saddle horn. I think it will also get good enough signal in your pocket or saddle bag - I haven't used one for awhile but I know others have them in saddle bags.
      http://www.walmart.com/ip/Garmin-eTrex-10-2.2-Portable-GPS/17167593

      You could also check eBay for any of these models and perhaps find something used that is less expensive. My first one I bought off eBay. Hope this helps.

  23. I havn't rode all week due to weather and tax return and kids stuff in school and daughters gecko dieing- been a rough week- was gonna ride gypsy yesterday and took too long to scrape pens- so I took her to vet this morning she had green gunk in nose and been coughing all week- she has a respiratory virus- so break for her and antibiotics- so I was really bummed- but my friend Diana Slash Quarter circle offered me her horse to ride and we rode in a very windy day but we had alot of fun- 15.5 miles :) Yeah buddy- made up for a crappy week.98.61 total- hopefully i can go ride her horse or take my sons horse and ride some on sun.

  24. I rode yesterday Feb 4 2013 wil Diana- 9.1 miles with her and then i went to do horse chores and saddled my sons horse and put 2 more miles on making it 11.2. Now total is 109.81

    ReplyDelete
  25. A week ago today Gypsy went to vet for upper respiratory virus- not sure which- but the next day she started colicing. (sp?) I spent all day and night with her and two emergency vet visits- and alot of walking- and got better. Its been two week since I have rode her and I see my friends passing me up miles wise- but I know its important to let Gypsy get better. I am not a patient person- but I do love my horse so I making myself be patient. My friend Diana has let me borrow her horse and we have ridden a little bit in that time period but not like I wanted to on Gypsy. So even though I have no more miles to report I do have a report- Two days so far Gypsy hasn't coughed and seems on the mend. Sometime hopefully in near future she and I can continue down this fun journey together again. I have never had so much fun in such a small amount of time riding even when its really cold. Thank you for this opportunity with this competition. Its made me get out and ride more and have so much fun doing it. I am looking forward to many months of riding and having fun and watching everyone progress. :)

  28. I rode Gypsy a little while waiting for my sons lesson to start and I rode a little during- took her nice and slow over 3 hr period rode 2.30 miles. Totalling 119.80 miles total..

    ReplyDelete
  29. She coughed the very next day so its been decided to give her a week or two off before I ride her :( Really sucks but I need to let her heal up good. So I rode my sons horse today in town on side of road- spooky guy- he didnt use to be like that- so it was a fight- but I rode him down to a friends house and worked him in arena and rode him back and he did so much better on way back- who would have guessed that lol. So Sat Feb 16, 2013 I rode 8.3 miles. I am gonna go ride him tomorrow too so maybe he will behave better, he has been left alone and not ridden for too long he is spoiled. Total to date is 128.10

    ReplyDelete

  36. I had to pyche myself up for a ride today and had a bad day at work so was really needing time with my horse. So i bundled up and doubled layered, and double gloved and hat- and rode- and rode- after 2 hrs wind quit. ( it was 30 degrees out with winds blowing 20 to 30 miles. And windchill 18) so I kept riding after wind and rode till dark. 10.2 miles for a total of 165.44 :)

  37. Rode with Diana and my son- 5.27 miles- riding with my son holds me back- he is not as interested in miles- total 170.71

    ReplyDelete
  38. I rode with my son till dark again- and i had to do last mile and half in dark and cold- so now she is sweaty and sitting in my trailer in front of my house in town so she can cool off before i take her back she is boarded at and do chores. :( I envy those that can ride during day and have a barn on own property to cool horses off while i get some things done in house. But on a good note 10.5. Total 181.21 now.

  39. I agree, it's tough to have a hot sweaty horse at the end of the day when they stay outside 24/7.

Rode a little today 10.2 miles- total 191.41 so far- I am taking my Friesian colt he is turning 4 in April to my friends in Lewellen tomorrow for more training- I have put 30 days on him so far.
