Team 92 - Karbo


My name is Karen Smith and I live in northwest Kansas.

 My children are grown, so now it’s time for me! I found out about the Distance Derby too late last year to sign up, but followed the site throughout the year. My husband and I have 8 Quarter Horses we ride and a couple of Haflingers that we use for driving. I enjoy trail riding and doing ground work with the horses.

 My goal this year is to complete level 2 in my home study course and to ride more than the 350 miles that I logged last year.

    1. Got to love those Haflingers! Our Haflinger experience started about 10 years ago when our daughter brought home a mare that was named Blitz! Team Karbo

    2. Did you see that is my team name too (Blitz).....lol. I picked my haflinger up from Joe Auten in Paola, KS just a few months ago and am loving him to pieces!

  9. Hey, you are way too far ahead of me! ;-) Hoping to get my boot off Friday. It's been so muddy and rainy (can't get my boot wet) that I lost a day or so. (Team8 Three little birds)

    As hubby and I were getting ready for church, we got a call to help the local vet catch a cow that had gotted away. After she was roped and in the trailer I took the opportunity to ride hubby's horse back home. It was a beautiful peaceful morning - I guess I attended Cowboy Church today!

    Today is my birthday so I took a ride to my favorite place - the creek. On my way there, I virtually reached my 500 mile goal with my best friend, Team Blitz. While she was driving her haflinger, Dinky, in Iowa, I was riding my favorite quarter horse, Mindy, in Kansas. She has been cheering me on the whole way. When ready to return home, I found a birthday balloon down by the creek!

  114. What an awesome Birthday! Congrats on getting 500 miles :-)

    ReplyDelete
  115. Had a great virtual ride/drive with you Karen on that day! Yes, and that birthday balloon by the creek said "Feliz Cumpleanos" which is happy birthday in Spanish. I sent that over from Iowa and glad it arrived there on your special day;) So very proud I crossed over the 400 and 500 mile mark with you and Mindy!

    Ended the year with a short, late afternoon ride. It was 60 degrees and barely a breeze. Couldn't have been any better!
    Happy New Year, everyone!
