Since her first long ride at age 51 in 2005, Bernice Ende, of Trego, Mont., has logged more than 29,000 miles in the saddle, crisscrossing the United States, Canada and parts of Mexico on horseback — alone. Traveling from 2014 to 2016, she became the first person to ride coast to coast and back again in one trek.

On Thursday, Oct. 17, Bernice will share her adventure at the East Bonner County Library from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Her new book “Lady Long Rider: Alone Across North America on Horseback” chronicles her travels, the friendly people she meets along the way, and her ongoing encounters with rough weather, wildlife, hard work, mosquitoes, tricky routefinding, and the occasional worn out horseshoe.

During her presentation, through stories and pictures, Bernice reveals her inner struggles and triumphs—testing the limits of physical and mental stamina, coping with inescapable solitude, and the rewards of living life her own way, as she says, “in her own skin.” Along the way, she discovers a sense of community and love of place that unite people wherever they live.

The Long Riders’ Guild has recognized Bernice as an outstanding ambassador for long-distance exploration on horseback—no other living woman has done as many journeys or ridden as many miles as she has.

The Bonner County Library presentation is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase, signed by the author. Refreshments will be served.
