I've always been into long hacks, and I only wish I had discovered it when I had my old mare. I didn't get involved in those days because I thought you needed a crew and I thought it was all really competitive. So we just carried on trail riding and hacking and hunting.
Anyhows, after doing loads of long slow distance work to get Harry's ligament right, I figured I may as well give it a go. I wrote to the EHPS and BERA, and the EHPS was the only one that replied. I also remember reading about Ossie Hare's death and thinking that he sounded like someone who was really passionate about what he had been involved with, and that it was worth a second look.
Then a short while later I bumped into 2 EHPS members when I was on a sponsored ride (have no idea who they were, but thank you if it was you), and they told me a bit more about it so I took the plunge and sent my cheque off. Did some rides and me and the horse loved it.
Then a couple of months into the next season, I realised I had to kick my farrier into touch, so I rang my local group chairman for some farrier recommendations.....she (Val) seemed OK (I never did have very good judgement :-P), so I joined the local group. Next thing I know I'm crewing for Val on a 75 mile ride! The rest, as they say, is history.
