If you run a quick search on Google, you will read that there is an estimated world population of 58 million horses, made up of over 350 separate breeds. That’s A LOT of horses! And, like people, each and every one is unique. We wish we could mee them all! We can’t of course, not in one lifetime, but we will do our best to try!
We bet you all went to school with or remember – or were – one of those horse-crazy kinds of kids. You know the type – they drew primitive drawings of horses on their school book covers, continually bothered their parents for riding lessons, sat in class daydreaming of pony club, mucked out stalls – for free – on weekends, or only sat up and paid attention in history class when images came up with old fashioned generals and cavalry – mounted on horseback. What is it about horses and kids?
Perhaps hints of the horse are deeply rooted within our human DNA. Face facts – humans and horses are long connected throughout history. The horse was our first form of transport. The horse was also our partner on the battle fields throughout history – both in victory and defeat. The horse is now central to some of our most popular sports and spectator activities. The horse is a central character in many little girls’ and boys’ dreams. The horse is our friend, and a part of us. The horse reflects our soul.
As kids, we think the world is such a huge place. As we get older, and by the time we reach adulthood, we realise that it is not such a big place. Aviation and the internet with its incredible far – reaching connectivity has made our world a small place. A place that is accessible. A place that has such beautiful and wonderful environments to see and experience. Places that are inhabited by horses, and people who love them.
We thought about it. Horses of the world, increasing global access. Could it be possible to traverse the world by horseback? Can we gallop the globe? We aren’t yet sure, by why not give it a go?
