Mongol Derby 2023

An eventer from Colorado; signed up for the Derby as a cure for her quarter-life crisis. Credits the “numerous and creative ways” she’s eaten dirt over the years and the expertise of her trainer Cayla Stone for making her into the kind of rider who can confidently take on the Derby. Hopes this “insane journey really pops her third eye open or something” or she’ll have to resort to “communion with magical fungi.”
