At Action Rider Tack, we are introduced to many riders who have sent us great photos of their horses and experiences. So, we decided to publish these photos of riders in action to share their stores with you. Our first 2015 Action Rider of the Month is Lindy Berkowitz and her horses, Kona and Rico. Lindy is an avid trail rider who has spent many miles out on the trail.
Lindy comments, “I’ve been riding horses most of my life and have enjoyed many breeds and disciplines. As I entered into my 60’s I left the show-ring behind and discovered the beauty, kind temperament and versatility of the Rocky Mountain horse. I bought Kona as a 3-year-old from Washington and we’ve been learning new things together ever since. He’s 6 1/2 now and has developed the most amazing 4 beat gait and silky smooth canter I’ve ever experienced. We’ve gone camping in the back country, spent time at a Ranch Camp, finished a 26-mile Endurance ride, participated in many Horsemanship Clinics, and ridden on tons of long-distance trail rides. He’s young and I’m young in spirit so together we plan to log many miles & adventures together for years to come. Happiness is riding down a great trail on the back of this lovely boy.
”I love this breed so much that I bought a second 6-year-old gelding this year called Rico. I’m hoping to coax my husband out on the trails with me – now that would be a great ride!”
