Flexi-Girth are absolutely delighted to announce their official sponsorship of the incredible, Long Rider team
A Strange Request
It was during their 1000 mile, UK and Ireland, adventure in 2018 that they discovered Flexi-Girth and have used no other girth since.
In March 2020 Cathleen, Vlad and their beloved team of 3 rescued horses, a one-eyed mule, and mad wolf hybrid will set off on their next epic, unsupported journey; this one over 2,000 miles, from Portugal to Romania. Their purpose will be to raise awareness of the mass deforestation happening in the Carpathian Mountains, Europe’s last true wilderness and home to most of its wild bear, wolf, and lynx populations.
All their previous journeys have been rides raising money for charity (in 2017 it was the RDA, last year it was two equine assisted therapy charities: The Conquest Centre near Taunton, and the Red Horse Foundation in Stroud)
Cathleen Leonard has also released a book about her amazing solo and unsupported 1,000 mile journey from the northwest of Scotland back to Cornwall, named ‘Before Winter Comes’ (available on Amazon). Plus a second book coming soon!
Flexi-Girth will be following them every step of the way!
