Jeanette Henderson and “Hubby” Roy spent eight years on the road full-time with their horses, riding in all 48 contiguous states. Their vast experience includes riding up to 10,500 feet in the Colorado Rockies, and down into the Grand Canyon. They’ve cantered across beaches coast to coast, from Maryland to Oregon, Texas to Florida. They mostly camped in primitive sites on public lands, allowing them to trail ride in some of the most beautiful and remote areas of the country, and in a very affordable fashion. That same remoteness often presented some extraordinary challenges that make for some fascinating and inspiring tales!
Besides keeping an online diary at her Equicamping website, Jeanette compiled an informative directory of all the horse camps they’ve visited (more than 260!) entitled “The Best (and Worst) Horse Camps Across America.” Rather than just a dry “just the facts” directory, she included portions of her diary entries about their experience at each location, so the reader can get a much more personal feel for the place. It has enjoyed brisk sales since being published in January 2016. Autographed copies of the book will be on sale at the Equicamping booth in the vendor section of this event. She also has a Facebook Group by the same name as the book, where she continues to share her experiences online.
