The Two Aims:
Raise £250,000 for the Charities by
Making and Completing the Ride – 2,500 miles
both need planning and preparation
I must start this note with a repeat of my thankyou to the Long Riders Guild.
This is a long ride. It will take at least six months. Each day must be a feasible distance and nights should be spent where we can get good support for horse and rider. With five days riding and two days off my aim is 125 miles a week - 2 hours in a car - with time for rest, dealing with problems, for planning, confirming arrangements and for fundraising activity. I have allowed several weeks for longer rest periods, problem solving, sitting out bad weather or treating injury. If more breaks are needed, they will be taken. There isn’t a fixed timetable and the Ride may take well over six months, though it would be simpler for all involved if the horse and I were "on schedule"!
