Grow the Green Bean Garden Challenge

We were happy to support a recent contest from Green Bean Endurance to help outfit new endurance riders.

Three winners (one from each division) were drawn from the list of qualifiers.

The Challenge:

Grow Your Green Bean Garden

The required  gardening “chores” to qualify for the drawing based on division:

Bean Sprouting  (On the Vine)
Garden chores: Obtain a mentor, volunteer a full day at a ride, and complete a ride of 25+ miles.

Bean Blooming (Picked)
Garden chores: Obtain a mentor, volunteer a full day at a ride, and complete back to back LD’s on the same horse or a ride of 50+ miles.

Bean Epic (Cooked)
Garden chores: Obtain a mentor, volunteer a full day at a ride, and complete four 50’s on the same horse this season or a ride of 75+ miles.

 
The prize?  

All riders finishing their chores (1 for each division) were entered into a random drawing for a tack set from Two Horse Tack: Bridle (western, or halter style), reins, and breast collar. Color combo of choice. To keep, or to share with a bean in need.

No matter what equine sport you participate in, it’s so important to get new riders involved whenever you can. The Green Beans are a mentoring/educational group where newcomers to endurance riding can meet veterans. Endurance riders love our gear because it’s waterproof and super light; it’s become so popular with Green Beans, we introduced a line of products for them.

Seedlings ‘In The Pod’

rowynbickinggreenbeanseedlinginthepodWe got this fantastic note from Jacke Reynolds of Green Bean Endurance about one of our youngest customers, Rowyn, who just got a pony bridle as part of our giveaways with Green Bean. We work closely with Green Bean to meet the needs of upcoming endurance riders, and even designed a line of tack specifically for them. Green Bean is a group designed to educate and assist new endurance riders:

Rowyn rides in our “Seedling” division.  In seedling we have “in the pod” riders and “out of the pod” riders.  Rowyn is in the pod, meaning she is learning about endurance riding, taking riding lessons, crewing, clinics, or intro rides.  This year Rowyn sprouted her way to an intro ride and completed on her pony.  She has earned 165 points in the seedling division.  Rowyn is a great example of how our children can learn responsibility and achieve measurable goals in endurance riding.   She looks forward to riding in her new official Green Bean Endurance bridle from Two Horse Tack.
Thanks Natasha and crew for planting the seeds that make these kids grow ♥
