Horse Podcast Ep 270: Pony Hiking for Refugees

Equestrian Adventuresses Travel and Horse Podcast Ep 270 - Pony Hiking for Refugees

Sue Manning had a very special adventure. This summer she hiked the Cairngorms with her pony Kirsty as pack horse, covering 200 miles in about a month. And not only did she have fun travelling this way, she also did it for a good cause, collecting money for the Red Cross Campaign “Miles for Refugees 2022”. In today’s podcast episode she talks about all her adventures, her highs and lows and why she decided to hike with her pony.
