Women’s Suffrage Centennial

Hello, hello! A big reminder from me to celebrate Women getting the right to VOTE! 2020 is the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment. I had planned a significant part of this year to be out riding in commemoration of women’s suffrage, as I come from a long line of suffragists. Of course, this ride has been cancelled due to the virus.

Meanwhile, please watch the PBS 4-part series on American Experience. Each PBS station will have different links, dates, and times, so just google, PBS American Experience Vote and you should find it easily. Cheers!

The Story of Bernice Ende

Film by Wren Winfield
W+E1 Productions

Approaching her 50th birthday, Bernice Ende picked up the reins and rode south on a borrowed horse. Her plan was to visit her sister, a 2000-mile ride from Montana to New Mexico. She never imagined that facing the challenges of life alone on the road, would take her so much further.… In Lady Long Rider, Bernice shares the miles of insight she gained on the horseback ride that ultimately became a 15-year 30,000-mile journey of self discovery.

What Bernice has to say about the film:

I was reluctant to watch the film. As I told the filmmaker, Wren Winfield, ‘I’ve lived it, I don’t need to watch it.’ However, curiosity got the best of me. Words failed me, but my tears did not. I was deeply moved by Wren’s ability to capture the essence of my rides. I applaud her presentation of my life with such artistic beauty and sincere dedication to depicting both the narrative and the insights gained from my life as a long rider.”

W+E1 Productions is pleased to announce that the film “Lady Long Rider” is now available for purchase. And I, Bernice, are pretty darn thrilled, too! (smiles)
