When one of our listeners and No Worries Club member, Roberta Carr recommended I interview a long rider for the show I was not sure what she meant. She told me little about long rider Bernice Ende and referred me to Bernice's website Ende of the Trail. Looking over her site I could see she had ridden a lot. She started in 2005 and wasn't sure where it would go, but the first ride was 2,000 miles. Can you imagine? At age fifty she retired and decided it would be a good idea to pack up her horses and dog and head out across the country. Faced with a number of challenges and many reasons to stop, she did not. She kept riding. After eleven years she has logged 25,000 miles. Yes, that 25,000. Now I know what a long rider is - Bernice Ende.
Bernice is wintering on the the East Coast. She will resume her return long ride to Montana by going through Canada from coast-to-coast. We caught up to her via Skype and she shared her experiences as a long rider.
Later in the show I offer a parting shot about the horses of the NFR and why they should get a little more recognition from CBS Sports.
