In May, 2015, I plan to set off from The Holy Island of Lindisfarne near the Scottish borders and ride across England on my little horse, Tommy, an Irish Connemara, to St. Michael's Mount in Cornwall. By linking these two holy islands, I hope to create a new pilgrim route for the 21st Century.

Raising Awareness for Equine Assisted Therapies

My family and I have been lucky enough to experience the therapeutic benefits that working with horses can bring, particularly at difficult times in our lives. My personal challenge is to reach my target of £10,000 to help make a difference and allow the RDA to provide more life-changing opportunities for disabled adults and children in the UK,particularly for people who may not normally have access to these wonderful creatures.
