Tales from the Trail: Gillian Larson Shares Stories of her Mexico to Canada Rides"



Gilian Larson and her equine partners have accomplished numerous long-distance solo rides on remote wilderness trails in the U.S. Together they have traveled from Mexico to Canada three times: twice on the Pacific Crest Trail (2014 & 2016) and most recently on the Continental Divide Trail (2018). She also completed the Arizona Trail and the Colorado Trail in 2017 and rode from the Grand Canyon across Utah to Wyoming in 2019. Since embarking on her first long ride at age 22, Gillian’s main goal has been to learn how to mitigate the many challenges of wilderness riding through proper planning and preparation, and to share this information to help others safely explore backcountry trails on horseback.
