Registration is open for the 2023 Sea 2 Shining Sea Ride
Join the 2023 Sea 2 Shining Sea Ride and follow Historic Route 66
Sea 2 Shining Sea is a yearlong virtual ride on Icelandic Horses. This 2,400 mile ‘ride’ follows the historical Route 66 from Chicago, IL to Santa Monica, CA. The ride begins on January 8, 2023 ending December 31, 2023. Each checkpoint will count for 150 miles or about 38 hours of riding. (Actual distances between locations may be slightly more or less than 200 miles)
Riders can participate as individuals or in teams. All participants must be USIHC members throughout the ride to log their hours. Participants log their time riding which is converted to distance at 4 miles-per-hour. If you are riding as part of a team you should log your individual time. The website credits your rides to the team you joined. Teams may have up to six riders.
Horses used in the ride must be Icelandic horses, either fully registered or having obtained a participation number from USIHC after being DNA verified. Registered horses do not have to be registered in the United States, any FEIF member country’s registry or WorldFengur is acceptable.
Prior to participating in the ride, please review the 2023 Sea 2 Shining Sea Rules.
