Lots of administrative things to do post-ride... like announce a winner for the beautiful print from Mark Terrell and Wild Horses of Nevada Photography!!! Exactly one month after riding into Reno, Ryan and I drew for a winner today. Apologies in advance for the low-budget filming ;)
Congratulations again to Heather Nichols of Reno, Nevada and thank you to everyone who donated during the ride. With the raffle over, I've taken down the donation page on the website. The final tally for donations is $1,530 -- all of which will go the Wild Horse Preservation League to help wild horses. Curious about where those donations came from? Check out this map I whipped together:
It's amazing that we had donations come in from as far away as Louisiana and South Carolina! Receipts are going in the mail this week so keep an eye out for those.
So, what are we up to now? Making appearances around the area! Look for Sage and I at the Wild Horse and Burro Expo on August 2 & 3. We'll be riding after the U.S. Marine Corps Color Guard and competing in some trail trials. Fun! And mark your calendar for our ride presentation on August 24 at the Wilbur D. May Museum. Come hear stories from the trail, see new photos, and ask questions! We look forward to seeing everyone there!
