Challenge Rides

Take on the challenge!

Saddle up for a challenge ride of a lifetime and raise £1000. By taking on the adventure you’re improving the lives of horses in the UK.

 Peru 2018

Think you've got what it takes to take on one of our Challenge Rides? Our intrepid horseback travellers climb unbelievable heights up Machu Pichu, ride across wild and testing environments in Iceland, trek through the deserts of Namibia or canter across the Mongolian Steppe.

Your life-changing challenge raises vital money so we can take preventative steps to end the sad cycle of another horse becoming a welfare case.

This is Aladdin, who, being a very spirited Shetland and one of a herd of feral ponies, wasn’t receiving the care his owner wanted to give. The 94 year old owner was struggling  to provide adequate care but too embarrassed to ask for help. One of our Welfare Officers met with the owner and all ponies received the treatment they needed, their hooves trimmed and confidence in humans restored by being handled daily. All the ponies were found a new forever home.

The money you raise prevents horses becoming serious welfare cases. Could you donate to this amazing cause?

“This was an amazing experience. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done but also one of the most rewarding - I am so proud of myself for completing this ride which took us through varying landscapes, all of which could have been plucked from a film set." Helen Williams – Namibia Rider
