Our horseback expeditions are as pure a challenge as it comes, the journey becomes completely self sufficient, all the equipment is packed and carried in saddlebags and this packing and organising becomes a key skill within the expedition. A true adventure and a highly memorable and rewarding way to complete a DofE Expedition.
