the holiday with a real difference take on a British Horse Society
you up for a challenge? Are you willing to explore wild landscapes
and conquer great heights? Are you bored with 'hacking round the
block' and fancy something a bit different? If you answered 'yes'
to any of those questions then a British Horse Society Challenge
Ride could be just what the doctor ordered!
Inca Challenge takes you into the mysterious and magical depths
and mountains of the Andes in Peru. Following the Inca trail, you
will encounter heights of up to 5750 metres as you wind along the
path that eventually leads you to the breathtaking Machu Picchu.
A head for heights is a must, as is a reasonable level of fitness,
as it will be necessary at times to lead your mount on foot up and
down gradients at altitude. Whet your appetite? Then find out about
the Inca Challenge Ride to Peru which takes place 11-25 June 2004.
the Inca Challenge sounds rather strenuous for you, why not try
the Hungarian Horse Riding Challenge? This offers the freedom we
have always wanted but can only dream about - until now! Totally
unrestricted riding along tracks and across country, without roads
or gates, taking you deep into rural Hungary through open and forested
countryside. Take in the views of the Somogy Maountains south of
Lake Balaton, the largest fresh water lake in Europe outside Scandanavia,
and feast under the starlight on traditional Hungarian open fire
cooked food. This ride is a brand new Challenge, which takes place
12-19 September 2004.
you are not a horse rider. Well The British Horse Society is offering
a rare and unique opportunity for you to experience the Gobi Desert
from the back of a camel. The Camel Challenge includes five days
riding on two-humped camels, through desert steppes and sand dunes,
experiencing real Mongolian nomadic life and culture. Take up this
challenge and escape into the Gobi Desert 9-19 September 2004.
Bedouin Challenge to Jordan is an inspiring ride across desert terrain.
The vastness of the landscape is immense as you ride across sand
dunes and open plains with breathtaking views and beautiful sunsets,
sleeping in Bedouin tents and dining under the desert stars - this
is an opportunity to really escape from the hustle and bustle of
everyday life. With plenty of time to prepare, this ride takes place
20-28 November 2004.
