Winner of RMR's $100 Gas Card

 

December 2013  

 

Mark on Ready’s first ride up a steep trail in the Rat’s Nest area of the Owyhees.

 

      Hundreds of people filled out Rocky Mountain Rider’s 2013 Reader Survey and entered their names in the drawing for a $100 gas card.

      This year’s winner is Mark Hansen of Nampa , Idaho . His name was chosen at random.

      Mark and his wife, Noralyn, own two horses — Shasta, a 27-year-old Missouri Foxtrotter and Ready, a seven-year-old Tennessee Walker gelding. They use their horses for day rides and camping in the National Forests.

      When we contacted Mark to tell him of his win, he was at the feed store buying LMF Senior for Shasta.

      Noralyn tells us, “Every weekend we ride out in the Owyhees, west of Nampa , where we live. For longer vacation times, we camp in different spots all over the state of Idaho . We either spend a week the first of June in the Sulphur Creek area out of Landmark, or the East Fork of the Salmon River near Stanley , or the Pioneer Mountains out of Mackey Bar.”

      They recently purchased Ready to replace Mark’s seventeen-year-old Tennessee Walker, Shadow, who lost a long battle with insulin resistance.

      Mark says that his new horse is a reincarnation of his old horse, “except that Ready is taller. I have to use a stump to get on him.

      “They both have the same mischievous personalities. The other day, Ready reached around our horseshoer and took off her shoeing apron. He just stood there with it in his mouth!”
