Lady Long Rider, Bernice Ende visited Iron River for a second time on April 9, 2019, via a 1969, Ford pickup at the Evelyn Goldberg Briggs Memorial Library. She entertained the audience and connected with friends met on her first journey through town on Wednesday June 25, 2014.
On that Wednesday, almost 5 years ago, a sixty-year young Bernice came into our community via ATV trails with her team of horses, Essie Pearl and Montana Spirit and her dog Claire. She came to us through a circuitous journey from Montana to the west coast on her 8000-mile-long ride east. Two years later, Bernice reached the great state of Maine. Though her coast to coast trail through Iron River was a long one, she has been on many extended rides. Bernice has put on over 30,000 miles since beginning her long riding career.
Come get a feel of Bernice’s travels and the many miles she has journeyed. Her book, Lady Long Rider is available for check out at the Evelyn Goldberg Briggs Memorial Library in Iron River, WI.
