Thank you for visiting the Expedition Equus fundraising page. Please dig deep and sponsor online!

Trailblazing a ride that is the first of it's kind; I shall be riding on horseback through Europe, the Causcaus and Asia.  The ride will span 2 continents, 15 countries and 15,000 km. I will be the first women in history to undertake this massive journey.

The ultimate motivation for our expedition is not only to fulfil a lifelong ambition but also to raise awareness and promote SOS Children, about whose work I have deep empathy and passions. 
I will encourage eco tourism and by using horses and camels as my chosen mode of transport I will reduce my carbon footprint. Through teaching local children I hope to give something back to the communities I encounter en route.

There is also a historical aspect to this trip, as I will be following the footsteps of traders along the ancient routes; the Silk Road. By undertaking the journey on horses and camels I will stay true to those who would have travelled the same route all those centuries ago.

If you would like to know more about my adventure, check out my website at www.expeditionequus.com

I aim to raise £15,000 - thats £1 for every mile I travel.  Help me to reach my goal by donating through my justgiving page.

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor  me.  SOS Children's Villages will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you

Please sponsor me now.

I look forward to your support.


*** UPDATE*** August 2008 *** Unfortunately Zena is no longer coming on the ride, however Becky is still going ahead and still needs your support!  Many thanks!
