Challenge Rides

Take on the challenge!

Since the launch in 2000, hundreds of horse riders have saddled-up and embarked on fantastic overseas adventures with The British Horse Society. From Namibia to Mongolia and from India to Iceland – we have put together equestrian adventures of a lifetime that will suit both your riding ambitions and your riding ability.

Experience vibrant cultures, make long-lasting friendships and enjoy the ride of your life all while raising vital donations to support our charitable work. Riders are expected to independently fund their place on their chosen trip(s), and are challenged with raising a ‘minimum fundraising donation’ through sponsorship and fundraising efforts. 

The Botswana Challenge Ride - 2019

Four adventurous and lucky Challenge riders return from the beautiful Okavango Delta in Botswana. Well done to Maggie Copus, Jane Graham, Sue Hawking and Heather Knowler for completing this ride in aid of The British Horse society and raising over £8,000.

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