I'm Shari Parys from Gretna, Nebraska, and I really look forward to this Derby! My two main teammates include Wiley (14yo Paint) and Mika (13yo Foxtrotter), with miles also shared with Lucy (7yo 1/2 Arab), and Tigger (19yo QH). I love trail riding and camping with friends as well as competing in CTR. There are so many beautiful places to ride in this country and I try to explore a few new ones every year. CTR gives me goals and feedback in my riding and conditioning, and Trail Time and now the Distance Derby really compliment that, giving me additional incentive to get out and ride longer and farther!
