Ride Between the Rivers 50 mile ride
This Saturday was the Ride Between the Rivers, which takes place in Ellamore, WV. This is one of my favorite rides every season and this year did not disappoint!
Camp is in a massive field, with a river with a great swimming hole beside it. Plenty of space for everyone.
The ride is notorious for being hot, humid, and full of climbs. This year was no different. The start was a bit delayed due to the fog, which became stifling humidity in the daylight. High temps were in the lower 90s and I don't want to think about what the heat index likely was.

At the end of the day, Dream and I placed second and got Best Conditioned!!
Could not be more proud of her. We had company the first loop (18 miles), then rode the rest of the ride alone.

looks like alot of fun :) congrats on another nice ride and beautiful pics to capture it
Thanks for sharing Dawn & a BIG congrats on your placings!
That picture of you two in the river is superb! Definately looks like a cover shot for a magazine...
Lovely scenery too.
I'm the farthest thing from an endurance rider, but I want to congratulate you and thank you for sharing your pictures of my beautiful state! West Virginia is amazing! Love the river photos.
You and Dream and Dean and his horse are phenomenal! True atheletes. Congrats on your engagement, too!
I always follow the endurance and logging miles threads. I think maybe 40 years ago I could have done that in another life. :) Very inspiring what a horse and human team can accomplish.
Wow, just checked out their website!

That's beautiful country. I haven't been there in years myself. It's really close to the scenic railroad. Looks like you'll have the time of your lives! It looks like a place you'd never want to leave!
I live way out on the western border of the state, but all my family lives in the interior of the state in the mountains. I was just out yesterday to visit my father at his assisted living in Elkins, another gorgeous area.
...and now I'm remembering where Ellamore is and realizing I drove right by your turn off on my way to Elkins. I shoulda waved! LOL
Now I just need to figure out who to invite...
I wish I could get away to something like that. My horses prefer for me to work.........
How about Denise? Can you load up the Biscuit (and maybe a cake) and come ride with us?
