Green Bean Endurance Challenge Directors

Deb Moe

Hi Green Beans! I've been a part of the Green Bean Endurance program since the founders, Jillane Baros, Jacke Reynolds, and I created it beginning with the 2015 season.  

I am still new to this sport, having  completed my first season in 2014 but  realized at the end of the season realized his old injuries would prevent him from going very far in the sport.   After a couple of seasons with more hiccups, I'm optimistic I've addressed many issues with my current horse, a Quarab named Dragon.  I'm looking forward to 2018 and a new endurance season with him.

I decided to run Green Bean Endurance because I am passionate about this sport and I find incredible satisfaction from seeing people achieve their goals.  I love to see people get excited about a sport that I love, too.  I also am a big data geek and enjoy the technical part of running this program. 

I'm a member of AERC, UMECRA, MnDRA, AHDRA, and AHA.  I'm also the webmaster for www.mndra.com.  I'm ride manager for  Border Battle Boogie which is held in May in Wisconsin.  By day, I work in IT supporting finance for a large corporation. If you ever need to chat, feel free to send me a PM on Facebook.  Best of luck to you and thanks for stopping by!

Hello Everyone!  My name is Ricky Stone.  I have had the pleasure to join into the sport of endurance when I began dating my wife three years ago.  After learning to ride, I began training with her for 15-20 miles at a time and I was hooked!  I ride a mare that was used lightly on trail prior to me purchasing her.  She is now 13 years old and was a craigslist find!  She is an ARab and loves to go down the trail.  Last season we completed four 50 milers and a 30 mile ride with no problems.  I joined Green Bean Endurance Challenge last season and truly believe it is a great way to connect, learn, and enjoy the sport!  I offered to step in to fulfill a director role this season and was happy to keep the program going.
