This photo is from the Manzanita 75 miler in 1999, east of San Diego. We were about 50 miles into the day doing a nice ground covering canter. Montoya looks nicely balanced and my contact is loose. My rein has a soft loop in it. This was her favorite way to travel. We finished 4th out of 8 riders with a ride time of 13 hours and 54 minutes!
