On March 1st, 2010, my friend Walter and I set off on an adventure with my Arabian horse, Sojourner. I rode Soj across America and Walter drove our little truck (with no trailer). The trip began in Los Angeles, California and successfully ended in Bath, New Hampshire 8 months and 14 days later. It was a 3,700 mile ride.

We rode in celebration of family and as an outreach to those dealing with divorce-related depression.

This ride tells a tale of love in many forms - through the people we meet along the way, our connection with the horse, with the land, and with each other.

As this blog goes on it gets more and more in depth with tons of photos and experiences. Snuggle in with a cup of tea and read this like a book. I have switched the blog around so it reads start to finish so you don't have to read backward (except the first entry).

Here is our story...

Arabian Horse World Magazine Article....




  1. Linny, I love your blog! You are living my dream, one day I want to long ride with my mare. Keep going and keep learning. When the road is long, let laughter fill the distance!

  2. Hey thanks! Alright...we'll start laughing 'cause woowee!! this road is long!!!! Nah, it's fine...it's just hot which makes things drag a bit...we met some people who have lifted us back up again though. :)

  3. Johnny Cash is on the radio as I write this; somehow appropriate. I do hope to join you on the ride asap.
    I just finished the mag article. What can I say? It is your writing but in a magazine format. Very tasteful treatment, beautiful layout.
    You have written about how well the people of the western countryside have treated you, most without suspicion (which is to say, without fear). I would be interested to know if that mindset will shift at all as you continue to head east to NH.
