February 2018

On the cover: Longtime member Kathleen Macy and her granddaughter, Khloey Prescott, 8, share a love of endurance riding. Kathleen is riding BC Dudley, her Tennessee Walker cross gelding, and Khloey is on Dakabu Brinas Legacy, an Arabian mare, at the 2017 Greenland Hightail 50-miler in Monument, Colorado. This year’s Greenland Hightail ride, managed by Chalice Coward, is on October 6. Photo © Patricia Jarvis, www.jarvis-images.smugmug.com.
