The RRR entry is now available.
In support of longtime members, Kenny and Connie Creech, this year all proceeds from the Red Rock Rumble will go to assist in Kenny’s rehabilitation from his long term illness and his transition back home. This year's ride is an opportunity for NASTR—and all who have enjoyed our trails and rides over the years—to say thank you and give back. Please join us at the Red Rock Rumble to say thank you to Kenny and Connie.
The Red Rock Rumble date has been moved to 15th October - please spread the word (the AERC calendar is currently not reflecting this change).
This year's Virginia City 100 will be held on September 17th. This will be the first year that Crysta Turnage has taken over as ride manager from Connie Creech. The ride entry, current Triple Crown standings, as well as historical stats on past winners, BC winners, Triple Crown winners, and buckle winners can be found here.
(It's not too late! There are currently three eligible teams who have not yet nominated themselves for Triple Crown).
NASTR is so proud of our long time member Gina Hall and her fabulous Fire Mt. Destiny, (sired by AERC Hall of fame stallion, Sierra Fadwah) for their outstanding partnership through many years of endurance riding. This will be their 15th year of competition with over 7000 miles, 2100 miles of those completed in one day 100 mile rides. They both represent the epitome of the AERC Pard'ners Award. Thank you to Beth Kauffmann, Kim Mileo and Pam Anderson for presenting the award and surprising Gina at the AERC National Awards Banquet. Congratulations Gina and Destiny, Pard'ners for life!

(Pard'ners Award: "Rider and horse perform together as a mutually bonded team. Rider and horse engender a spirit of friendship, enthusiasm and championship that makes those around them glad to have attended the ride. However competitive they may be, good sportsmanship remains their first priority. Horse and rider take care of each other. Together horse and rider personify the prevailing and abiding goal of AERC: "To finish is to win." This award was established in honor of the late Mae Schlegel and her horse Pard. The recipient receives a keepsake plaque and the names of the "pard'ners" are engraved onto a perpetual trophy." )
