Beverley at the American River Classic AERC 50-mile endurance ride on
Lucky, Dick Carter's 10 year old Arabian gelding, 29 April 2006. The ride
went from Folsom to Auburn, covering the last 12 miles of the Western
States (Tevis) Trail. It was hot! It was technical! It was a long, hard
ride! Lucky spies the photographer in the bushes, but I don't notice a
thing, cantering comfy in my new Barefoot Cheyenne treeless saddle.

Beverley and her Arabian, Dream, training for the Webb Ranch Spring
Fling Dressage Musical Freestyle Show, April 2005. We are using an iPod
with a splitter for attaching two sets of earphones. Dream has the iPod
ear buds positioned next to her ears, under her bridle and I am wearing
the second set. We tried the car CD (too dusty and no way to restart
without dismounting) and a boom box (scared and distracted other horses
and riders). The iPod worked perfectly at walk, trot, and canter and
could be controlled from the saddle. Dream learned to pace to the music.
