This discipline is for experienced riders only, as you are responsible for your own fitness and well being, AND that of your equine companion who is going to carry you through the 500km. We stress this is not a race, you go at the pace of the slowest horse, and the well-being of your mount is more important to us than the finishing. The event takes an immense amount of training for your horse and a fair amount for you too, but there can be no better way to understand what our forebears experienced before the invention of a car. The route follows the same as the off road walkers to keep your team away from tarred roads and traffic. There is a short section where a horse box is required to move your horse 40 kilometres through Mutare. The rest of the distance is achievable without a horse box following you day and night. Please contact us for more information if you wish to participate in this discipline and we will send through a form for you to fill out with specifics of you and your horse. This will ensure that this is the challenge for you both. Looking forward to having you onboard for an out ride like no other.
