Following her epic ride from John O'Groats to Land's End, Vyv has embarked on another long distance ride of some 1500 miles over three months. She set off on her black Fell ponies to discover white horse carvings and many other celebrated monuments to the horse. These ancient and more modern carvings symbolise the cultural importance of horses in the UK.
In this talk, Vyv will explore the role of the horse in Britain's past, present and future. Along the route, she will introduce us to people and places offering a further insight into social, political, cultural and economic role of horses in Britain.
This event has been organised by the East of England committee.
You will receive joining instructions for this event at 10.00am the day after making your booking, or 30 minutes prior to the event if you book on the day.
