PLEASANT HILL - More than 50 riders and horses came from 13 states as far north as New York and as far south as Georgia to compete Saturday in the first-ever endurance competition at Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill.
Twenty-seven riders were entered in the 25-mile ride and 25 riders in the 50-mile ride that traversed 2,900 acres of Shaker Village's rolling land.
The event was the brainchild of Jim Rogan, a Boyle County attorney, who has been a competitive endurance rider since 1984. The scenic and challenging terrain coupled with the hospitable assets of Shaker Village's comfortable rooms, good food and secure stabling led Rogan to believe that the ride and site would draw competitors. Working with Shakertown naturalist, Don Pelly, Rogan worked for 18 months in planning the event.
