Cindy Brengman from Stevensville, MT driving a pair of Norwegian Fjords that belong her her and Kris Fuller on the back as her Groom/Navigator.
New this year was a wooden bridge – built by Alex and LeeAnn. The Fjords thought maybe it was easier to jump off the deep end.

Eileen Wallin with her beautiful Friesian mare. Donika Shrauger on back.
Isn’t she beautiful?!
Aren’t they both beautiful?!
Eileen takes her mare through the water.
Kris Fuller didn’t get to compete this year – the Fjords were not in condition to run the courses twice but she did get to try each of the obstacles. This is the first in Marathon – I never get to photograph each competitor inside because it is too far to run and I’m too busy outside.
