On 27th June 2010 I set off with my two Fell ponies, Magic and Mikado, from Dunvegan on Skye.  Riding one pony and leading another to carry my gear, I've followed in the footsteps of the drovers south through England to the traditional fattening grounds (for cattle that is!) in Norfolk.  The final leg of our journey was to Smithfield Market in London, which we reached on 25th August 2010 having covered approximately 900 miles.   You can follow my journey on or

There are few of us who have not been touched in some way by cancer, if not physically, then through the loss of family and friends.  Every penny I raise through sponsorship will go direct to Cancer Research UK .  By sponsoring my ride, you can help make a real difference.
