WHAT YOUR SPONSORSHIP & DONATION GOES TOWARDS

Goal to raise $10,000

The Horses

25-28 horses depending on the course design and the use of a custom built saddle designed to carry you 1000km.

The Support

A team of vets to care for your horses, a team of medics to care for you, should you need it and a race crew to ensure the race is run fairly and smoothly. Behind all this a massive cast of drivers & interpreters and the piles of technology, medicine and vehicles they need to do their jobs.

Pre-race Training

Three days of medical briefing, veterinary briefing, technical training, and riding practice.

The Course

A 1000km mapped out course with 25-28 horse stations to feed you and provide you with shelter. A start line camp for training, a party and launch ceremony. 

Tech and Expertise

Use of a tracking device so your followers back home and the race crew know where you are. Expertise from Derby HQ and our endurance riding experts in the lead up to the Derby.

Our Mission Statement:

"To bring out the best in others and each equine companion by being the best we can be by remaining curious."   - Nancy

"Get lost, stay alive and hope to live to tell the tale. " - Janet

NANCY O'NEILL

Team Canada

Nancy's life passion is her connection to horses and sharing that experience with others. Nancy has ridden all her life but states she didn't start 'really riding'   until 1990, where she first started her career at Silver Creek Farm (New Mexico) working as a stable hand with Swedish Warmbloods.  By 1994 Nancy's drive and horsemanship lead her to take the position as Secretary for the NM Dressage & Combined Training Club and assistant to the Directors for the Region V Dressage Finals. Outside of the shows and stables, Nancy became an active member of Bernalillo County's Mounted Search & Rescue and Backcountry Horsemen. 


In 2001, Nancy moved to Washington state and became active in the Society for Creative Anachronism. She brought classical riding to historic prominence in the local kingdom by demonstrating and teaching the classical methods as presented by Xenophon, Dom Duarte, Pluvinel which is still being taught today at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. She has taught at community colleges and many clinics while residing in Washington State. 


Today, Nancy resides in Canada and is teaching in Kelowna, where she and her shire Leo continue Classical Riding and teachings. 

JANET O'NEILL

Team USA

"I am not a professional competing rider, I am a passionate rider."


Janet has been riding horses since she was able to walk. Janet grew up on a farm where Nancy (mama) encouraged her to be involved and taught her classic English riding standards. Janet spent much of her childhood years watching her mother work on a horse ranch (Ulla Bassaleck's) and attended all the shows that my mother helped her compete in. 


An achievement of Janet's was at the age of 14, she got the joy to raise and train a rescued foal of her own. That horse now belongs to a family friend who uses her as a beginner training horse and in SCA gaming.


Riding has been away for Janet to communicate, connect, relax and free herself.
