Karen Binns DiCamillo finishes 50th 160km in Indian Springs

Flight Leader Farm, Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA. Saturday 29 April 2017. The Indian Springs management team choose for their April event a new site in the form of Flight Leader Farm owned by David and Tracy Kaden of Specialized Saddles.

Endurance World Indian Springs Riders approaching the finish.All competitors enjoyed the race Marissa Bartmann (Irish Cream MR, irregular gait in the CEI2* 120km) commented: “Enjoyed the trail and felt like I was home” the fight for top honours was less competitive than in the other rides.

The main reason seemed to be that there was another race the week prior to Indian Springs plus another one the week after.

“Thank you for a great ride and beautiful trails” reacted Katilin Cummins but the fast track along the Rio Grande River took a toll on the riders and their mounts.

Karen Binns DiCamillo (RGS Red Robin) kept her goal in check “to finish ” and it paid off big times even if she arrived after dark as the only finisher.

Endurance World Indian Springs. Riders leaving the forest.Karen wasn’t the quickest to tackle the CEI3* 160km that ran over six loops of 35, 32, 32, 29, 16 and 16km but where her competitors were one by one eliminated for irregular gait she claimed top spot in a time of 17 hours and 41 minutes.
Karen also earned bragging rights to finishing her 50th 160km race!
Radu Ciubuc (Nikizitan) who was eliminated after the first loop said: “the race was a little tougher than I thought”

Endurance World Indian Springs. A lonely rider.In the CEI2* 120km two riders rode together all the time and crossed the finish line together with Dominique Freeman (Legend of Fadjur) from Great Britain declared winner and Carla Eigenauer (WCF Atillah) in second.
