 How to Ride in…..

 

 

Alina Grace Dudding (above) is the first woman to twice ride the length of the Pacific Crest Trail solo. After having nearly completed the second journey in 2016, Alina and her horse Valentino’s progress was blocked by a heavy snow fall. In a demonstration of incredible determination, Alina packed a snow shovel on her backpack and swung into the saddle. What occurred next is one of the most remarkable horse adventures in modern times.
It took Alina and Valentino a month to do the last sixty miles. Along the way they survived freezing weather, deep snow and travelled along a snowy cliff.
