When I wrote about Elmer Bandit in June, the 37-year-old gelding was on the brink of setting a new record for lifetime mileage for competitive trail rides. Elmer had the summer off, but just came closer to his goal by finishing second in the 60-mile Spotted Rump Ride Competitive Trail Event (St. Louis, Mo.) in the Open Lightweight Division. Completing this ride brings his lifetime mileage to 20,420, closing in on the record of 20,710 miles held by Wing Tempo.
