We completed our second LD! Fantastic trail in the moonlight. Dixie was strong and full of go the whole time, except when we headed up into the hills *away from home ohno!* The other LD turtles had to "pull" us along for a while.

Ride time about 4:30, total time 5:30. HR at the final vet check was 48. She didn't drink til mile 15, but started drinking and eating nonstop after that.

The four people I was loosely riding with were nice. One BIG Champagne Gold TWH, a foxtrotter mule, and two Arabs. Dixie and the Arab mare hated each other at first sight. :(

A couple things went wrong on the human side, but the horse side went perfectly. More later.
