The Long Riders' Guild
A Journey to Santiago de
Phillips and Lucinda Munchhausen have just set off on a journey across France
and Northern Spain to Santiago de Compostella.
Sadly, Jules and
Lucinda have been forced to cancel their journey due to emergencies and illness
- one horse went lame and another was bitten by a snake. As Lucinda wrote
to The Guild:
"I think the hardest day for me was when Lotus was
bitten by the snake: it was something I knew could happen but didn't prepare
myself for the helpless feeling whilst waiting for the vet that never turned
up, I could have kissed the French vet that came to our aid - I have never
been so happy to see someone.
I was very disappointed to not be able to continue but
as you have probably learnt in our blogs for me my horses are very important
more important than a destination and as Odi was lame the decision was made
for us. I am so proud of the horses - not once did they object to any
situation, they gave their all and were far more courageous than us."
