On today’s episode, Ute talks to Devan Horn, Equestrian Adventuress, Endurance Rider and Ultra Marathon Runner. Devan tells us all about her various horse riding adventures around the world and about how she prepares herself and her horses and how she finances her riding. In summer 2020 she organized the Covid Derby, a virtual 1000-Miles endurance race for riders, runners and other outdoor sports. In today’s episodes she tells us how she got & implemented the idea and how surprised she was, when a bunch of riders from the Philippines signed up for the challenge.
