Gene Glasscock is a Longrider:

A longrider is an Equestrian who have ridden more than 1,000 continuous miles on a single equestrian journey. Gene is the only person on record to have ridden from North to South America. The Texas born equestrian traveler accomplished that feat in the 1980's when he rode his Quarter Horse "Cactus" 12,000 miles from the Arctic Circle in Canada to the Equator in Ecuador.

Then in September 2002 Gene set out from Denver Colorado to recreate the Overland Westerners' amazing equestrian journey. Gene rode over 3 years and 20,000+ miles visiting all the continuous 48 state capitols. Gene is the oldest person that we know of to make a journey of this magnitude. Gene guided by the Lord and his desire to make a difference in the world he rode for the children of Paraguay by directing donations to The Phillip Scholarship fund. The fund set up by Gene to provide funding for the children of Paraguay to have the chance to learn at Pensacola Christian Collage with a contract to return to Paraguay and to help their countrymen. Gene finished this amazing trip in December 2005 in Columbus, Ohio.

Gene currently is traveling in a sheep wagon pulled by the Girls (two 14yr old mule mares) acrossed the Southern United States. Gene has made it to the east coast and now is on a return trip west.
