A successful long ride depends on your gear.  We would like to take as little as possible but at the highest quality we can get.  Here is the beginning of the list of items we are accumulating.  If anyone has any of these things or something similar that could be donated/loaned for the ride, let us know!  Otherwise, this is where the donations are going.  Any donations not used for the ride will be given to www.erasems.org.

UPDATE!!!  We have everything!  We got the horse, tack, saddle, etc.  All we need now is feed, gas, vet, shoes, and food!  Woohoo!!
