A group in Great Britain which is trying to raise funds and awareness to create an official Museum of the Horse in that nation is undertaking a special ride. According to their announcement "Caroline Baldock and her two companions will be riding some of the ancient Canterbury pilgrim's road" at the end of September. The three day journey will be used to raise funds towards the Museum of the Horse, a project they have been promoting for some time.
As they say on their website: "The story of the horse in Great Britain needs to be told. The horse has played an important part of the development of our society for over 2000 years, yet we do not have a museum to record and celebrate this ancient partnership."
The event includes a special blessing and reception at the Canterbury Cathedral. Sponsors are invited to join in the ride (or walk along). It sounds like an interesting event, and a great cause, since who doesn't love a Museum of the Horse?! Their website already has some super pages of fascinating adornment, tack and other horse-related items. Take a look at these, for example.
