Any place your heart so desires to adventure and log your miles!
2021 RANGER 100 Mile Challengethis year is a partial fund raiser for the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary.
Your Challenge at Your Pace You decide, ride as little as one mile at a time or divided the mileage into three days per week or a few short rides during the week followed by a few extra miles of adventure on the weekend. The idea is motivation and momentum in a goal for you and your horse to achieve your milestone of 100 miles. You set your pace, the days, the miles and if you aim for 25 per week you will be finding yourself at 100 miles by the end of the month! Or you can add up the miles over several weeks! You decide what is right for you and your horse to create those 100 miles of memories with together.
CAN I TRACK RESULTS ONLINE? You can track your mileage on this website under the "RESULTS" tab of your challenge. Use of online tracking under the results tab is optional. Some participants track their miles in a notebook, on a calendar or in a tracking app.
ARE THERE PLACINGS? Although this is categorized on this sign up page as a virtual race, the only winners are you & your horse spending time together gaining experience, fitness, friendship and miles. This is a challenge, not a race.
WHAT DO I RECEIVE FOR COMPLETION? You will receive a beautiful, custom made for this event, medal, an embroidered patch and a pin to commemorate the100 miles you have achieved with your horse or run/walking on your own. Many participants are putting the patch on a jacket, saddle pad or on their pommel bags.
WHAT MILES COUNT? We are happy to say that this motivational challenge is open to riders, carriage drivers, those walking with their horses! And it is also open to hikers, runners and cyclists! We even have had someone roller blading the 100 miles. CAN I USE MORE THAN ONE HORSE? The answer is YES! Though you only get the one medal and one patch per sign up! We are creating this Challenge to encourage each other and set goals in measurable 100 mile increments.
CAN I COMBINE MY PERSONAL RUNNING MILES WITH RIDING MILES TO REACH 100 MILE GOAL FASTER? What do you want the medal to signify to you? If you would like the medal to symbolize all of your miles with one horse, then you count just the miles with one horse. Would you like it to symbolize how many active miles you had then you can absolutely count run/walk/ride miles all together.
ARE THE MILES RETROACTIVE? No, they are not. The nature of a challenge is for what you are going to do once you accept it, not what you did two months ago. So your miles start tracking on the day you sign up.
DOES ARENA RIDING COUNT? Yes, if you are riding in a standard to large arena. WHERE DOES MY MONEY GO? Well, to my business! And to help create more challenges in the future! I have long believed in the "Pay it Forward" theory in life and often add a cause or a charity to an event, for the 2021 RANGER 100 Mile Challenge the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary receives a percentage of the entry fee. In 2016 we visited the Black Hill Wild Horse Sanctuary and have seen the many acres the horses get to roam and live in a natural environment. We would like to help preserve this way of live so they can continue to run free, or as we noticed when we were there it is more walking around happily and less running! WHAT IS THE MEANING BEHIND THE RANGER 100 Mile Challenge? When working on the original medal the name RANGER just stuck with me, and I honestly did not know where it had came from, though knew I should stick with it, it was a very old west name, and we all love to be in the open range on our horses, so it stuck. THEN I came across the story of a young mustang stallion named RANGER who had lost his life, and saw the beautiful images that a photographer had made documenting his life. That was when the meaning behind the name RANGER took root for me- the mustang, and that we would going forward attach a mustang benefiting cause to this event. I look forward to creating the RANGER 100 Mile Challenge with the knowledge that the mustangs will benefit from our miles with our well loved horses.
I hope you look forward to logging 100 miles and earning a beautiful commemorative medal, embroidered RANGER patch and pin to go along with your 100 miles! We have created a lovely medal and also an embroidered patch to commemorate the miles you have journeyed together with your horse. No hour of time is wasted that is spent in the saddle! WHAT IF I AM NOT IN THE USA? CAN I STILL I AND GET THE MEDAL? The cost of this challenge includes shipping of the medal to USA only. If you are outside of the USA you will be mailed the embroiled patch only. Though you can request to have the medal shipped outside of the USA at your cost. For international participants we mail an embroidered patch of the same size and design of the medal. Thank you for understanding that if I paid for the international shipping it would cost me far more than what the sign up fee is and I cannot do that. Due to some unpaid international shipping, shipping of outside of USA requested medals will not be shipped unless the invoice for shipping is paid ahead quickly.
