BHS Challenge Rides 2016

BHS Challenge Rides

BHS Welfare works to improve the lives of horses across the UK and has more equine Welfare Officers than any other UK organisation.

They are able to offer a lifeline to more than 8,000 horses per year. Current initiatives include the “Think before you breed” campaign; the “Friend at the End” support scheme (FATE); and the “Grass Sickness” campaign.

Each Challenge Ride is carefully constructed and combines a great route with sound horses, reliable tack and top-notch local guides. Above all, Riding Challenges are group activities (usually 10 riders) and it's a shared experience.

A BHS Riding Challenge is achievable by any rider who cares about horses and rides regularly (once or twice a week). Everyone enjoys the experience of a lifetime and raise money that is crucial to the welfare work. Saddle-up and enjoy a life-changing experience.

This really does put the fun in fundraising! For more information on the British Horse Society www.bhs.org.uk or contact Wendy Minor at BHS (Welfare) wendy.minor@bhs.org.uk or Venture Co.

13 days: a high altitude ride, along trails cut by the Incas, on sturdy ponies descended from Conquistador Andalusians. This will be the most spectacular country you’ll ever hack through with peaks on every side rising to above 6,000m; ends at Machu Picchu.

Mongolia - Gobi Steppe

27th Aug to 8th Sept 2016
14 days: Mongolia is as different from the UK as you can get: vast, with a tiny population and a reviving nomad culture. And nomads value their animals above all else. Their horses (not ponies!) are tough little things with bags of stamina. This 12 day ride takes you across open Steppe and around the fringes of sandy deserts. Overnight in a gers.
