Sea 2 Shining Sea Ride

Sea 2 Shining Sea is a yearlong virtual ride on Icelandic Horses. This 4,000 mile ‘ride’ follows the route taken by Annie Wilkins from Minot, ME to Hollywood, CA. Annie’s story is shared by Elizabeth LeIs in her book The Ride of Her Life. The ride begins on January 8, 2022 ending December 31, 2022. Each checkpoint will count for 200 miles or 50 hours of riding. (Actual distances between locations may be slightly more or less than 200 miles)

Riders can participate as individuals or teams. All participants must be US Icelandic Horse Congress 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. Prior to participating in the ride, please review the 2022 Sea 2 Shining Sea Rules.
