Sea 2 Shining Sea Ride

The Sea 2 Shining Sea Ride is a year long virtual ride open to all USIHC members. This 9,900 mile route circumnavigates the United States starting and ending in St. Joseph, Missouri. It follows the historical Pony Express and Butterfield Overland Mail routes, stopping at many famous landmarks along the way.

Riders may join as individuals or in teams. Every time you ride or drive your Icelandic horse, you can log your hours as long as you’re not being paid for that time. Last year USIHC members and their horses covered over 60,000 miles!

Sign up now to join the (X number of riders, I will get this number) riders that are logging miles across the United States.

Prizes are awarded to the first place finishers as well as the first 12 participants to complete the journey! Thank you to Karlslund Riding Equipment for contributing the saddlebag prizes and Tolt Tack for generously organizing this donation.
