Product Reviews: Hoof boots – Renegades!!

Day 40, 2011 XP – Bucklands to Virginia City.

Where do I start?  This photo was taken on the final day of the 40 day, 2040 mile 2011 XP ride.  Chief had just finished an 18 mile leg and was about to be loaded into the trailer to be hauled to a drop-off point to finish the remaining 30+ miles of the ride.

Wearing Renegade Hoof Boots the entire way, of course!

Useful Product Reviews: Insulated water bottles and Propel

One of the things I’d like to do is go over some of the useful products that I used this summer.  I definitely put many different items to the test.  I was very fortunate to have some great sponsors that supplied me with some of the best products in the industry!

I also used many other items that I had already had, or purchased just for the big ride.  Some things were life-savers and

What I did this summer (so far)

I haven’t had time to devote much time to this blog.  I had a great time on the 2011 XP this summer.

I wrote a journal during the trip, which is here (from that link, click on my name – Karen Chaton).

I had the most amazing trip riding Granite Chief and Pro Bono 2040 miles on the Pony Express trail, from St. Joseph, MO to Virginia City, NV.

It was some adventure.  We
