My name is Kelly Wood and I live in the beautiful Pacific NW w/husband, son, 45 alpacas and my two dream horses, Sissy (silver dapple SaddlebredxArab mare) and Tazz (black Arab mare). Sissy is an awesome trail horse, goes anywhere and is a joy to ride. Tazz is just starting out w/about 7 short rides so far, but doing great on the trail. Unfortunately, between farm chores, a full time outside job and starting up a home business it's been hard to find time to ride.
So, in order to motivate myself, I'm joining the Distance Derby as Team BITS (Back In The Saddle). My goal is lots of conditioning trail miles with my mares and good friends and entering at least one LD ride before the end of this year.
