I am so excited! Previously, I spoke of my interview with Gillian Larson the thru rider (long rider). She has done the Pacific Crest Trail, the Arizona Trail, Mojave, Knive’s Edge… with her horses!
You can read about her and that interview, here.
After contacting Gillian and meeting up, she told me that she was moving to Arroyo Grande (near me, but way cooler – as in temperature). I dared ask if she, “ever took horses into training?” She said she hadn’t, but she was willing to start with Dalton!
However, first she needed her new digs to be set up for horse training, including accommodations for her own pack of horses.
Yesterday, I got the call! Time for Dalton! He leaves next Thursday, the 28th.
Wow! I’m so excited for us all!
Here is a new video about Gillian created by Firestone Brewery. She is an ambassador for them, so of course, this spot is more about the beer she holds. But, just LOOK at the scenery! I want this for myself, but if I can’t do it, at least my horse can. My dream…
HERE IS GILLIAN’S YOU TUBE PAGE WITH MORE LOVELY PHOTOS!

Gorgeous, gorgeous scenery…
DALTON IS READY!
I’m so excited for Dalton to learn, grow and earn his chops under Gillian. If I can’t give it to him, I’m going to let him shine with someone else for a while.
This is why I’ve been working and saving. Dalton’s college tuition.
If I’m lucky, Gillian might even like him enough to take him on a thru ride. We’ll see…
She posts on Instagram under Thru_Rider. The app is HORSEGLOBE
Do you remember the riding app that Gillian uses when she rides? Many thanks!
