Virtual Ride Results June 2020

10 Day Challenge: The results were a little difficult to tally and a lot of math. To complete participants needed to dedicate 30 min or 1 mile to exercise each of the 10 days. 4 of these days needed to be riding their horse on the trail or arena if the horse was going under saddle. 

Our clear winner is Helen Smith who rode the most miles and even better she rode her horses every day! Top junior was a tie between brother and sister Thaddeus and Violet. Top team goes to the Zattiero Wojcik family team. Most overall miles goes to Eileen Kirsch and oldest horse rider pair is Ericka Bjorum-Nelson with DBK Windsong Brio.
