Rita broke her withers many years ago, but that has not stopped her from completing her first 100 miler, The Big Horn, or from passing the 4,000 mile mark this year. Rita is 22 years old.

Rita and her buddy Quest.

Rita and her mom, Dana Landale, come early to rides, find and mark trail, and then unmark trail. We celebrate their commitment and Rita's amazing displays of perseverance.

Dana's husband, Nipper, keeps Rita happy in her Easyboot Glue-Ons, and is quite the gluing master. 

Hooray for Rita and her family.
