My goodness! The Nevada Discovery Ride is just exploding online right now between Facebook and Instagram! It's very exciting to spread the word about the next ride and get more people talking about wild horse adoption. I truly never expected my desire to go undertake some long distance rides to be of interest to so many people, but I appreciate the support and am humbled by the positive responses. Ultimately my goal is simple - it's just to encourage wild horse adoption. That's it. I've received dozens of emails this week from people who want more information on wild horses, so I guess it's working!
The Reno winter has been much more significant than the last few drought years. In addition to getting lots of snow, temperatures have been downright freezing! But, Sage and I are still getting in trail rides - albeit short ones and only when wearing about 10 layers. We'll ramp up our conditioning as the weather starts to warm. I can't wait until horse camping season!
We keep attracting wonderful sponsors, for which I am so grateful! Our new media sponsor is Wild Heart Mustangs, a brand new e-zine that is all about wild horses and burros! They're just starting out, but we think they're off to a great start. I'm looking forward to having some articles about the ride included throughout the year. Stay tuned over the next few weeks for updates on even more new sponsors! And, in the meantime, keep sharing our Facebook page and be sure to follow us on Instagram, where I'm sharing photos and stories from the trail. Thank you all for your continued support of the NDR, but more importantly of wild horses!
