Update: I have just received news that I will in fact be riding for Sweden at the World Championships this fall. More infomtation will follow shortly. Thank you to everyone for their support so far. The road to the World Championships in endurance riding and how you can help!

This website is created in response to people asking to know how I am doing and how they can help me reach my goal of riding for Sweden in the World Championship in Endurance riding - 100 miles or 160 km - on a horse. WEG 2010 with 8 equestrian disciplines is the largest sporting event in the USA in 2010. Endurance is one of those disciplines.

I had toyed with the idea of riding at international level for a few years but in the beginning of 2009 something happened that made me realize that I needed to take advantage of an opportunity I may never have again. Reaching this goal is about overcoming hurdles, beating the odds and above all - having fun while doing it!

My goal is to ride for the Swedish endurance team in the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky, 2010.

Beginning January 1, 2010 I aim to raise $11,000 to cover the racing budget for this year. Follow the progress here.

I committed to my goal and spent 2009 in pursuit of qualifying myself and several horses for the big event. I have had success and Aces Comett and I finished the World Championship test ride in October on the actual WEG course in Kentucky in horrible weather conditions. Comett and I also made the qualifying time for the WEG. Awesome little horse! My next step is to qualify my own horse R Tse Q during the spring and ride in even better times.

The next couple of months will be crucial for the qualifications. I will however need help financing it and this is where you may help me. In Sweden we have a saying "många bäckar små blir en stor å," meaning something like "many small creeks eventually become a river." Please help me by contributing a small creek!

The following pages will introduce to you what the deal is all about. The core of it is really about one woman's determination and wish to challenge herself and going from being a normal local rider to an international contender.

Happy trails!

Cecilia, R Tse and Comett
