DofE on Horseback is not an easy option, these are hard, long days, but the reward of completing your expedition is high, you just need to earn it. Riders must be comfortable in different terrain, confident on roads, choose sensible routes in wild country, show utmost care for the horses and be prepared for lots of tack and horse cleaning, as they do make a habit of getting dirty.

You will need to work well as part of a team and be happy to communicate well with others.
