My wife and I were lucky enough to meet Gene this past weekend he and his horses stayed the night and had a meal. What an individual, he is riding to all 48 capitals horseback, he has 7 left. he has been doing it over two years and expects to finish in December. He is riding for the philips fund to educate young people from Paraguay at a christian college in Florida then they must return to help their people. He was also the only one to ride from the arctic circle to the equator, he did that in the 80's He has a website www.geneglasscock.org check it out. He also looks for assistance along the way with a place to stay and keep his horses. He travels about 20 miles a day and is heading for St Paul, left Redfield SD this last weekend, so heads up along the way!
