What you need to know

On finishing university Edward, whose parents live in Thorney, with three friends set out on the Inca Ride in January 2009.  Their six-month adventure took them through Ecuador and Peru, along the ancient routes of the Incas, the largest pre-Columbian empire in South America.  Trekking with their noble criollo horses through precipitous mountains, dense jungle and searing desert, enduring altitudes up to 15,000 feet, they were exposed to some of the most savage terrain on Earth.  On their path, they experienced injury and disease, found themselves held at gunpoint, and became subjected to the immense instability of the Andean elements.

Before their departure, half the team had no equine experience, riding competence or Spanish tongue and none had spent more than a cluster of nights away from the comfort of a warm bed.

Come and let yourself be captivated by Edward talking about their journey, their friendship and humour, the companionship with their horses and their human encounters along the way and raise funds for the Peterborough & District Riding for Disabled Group based at New Pasture Stables, Thorney.
