Those who know me know that I’ve grown quite horsy after turning 50. I’ve been lucky enough to be accepted to ride the Gobi Gallop for 2020 to raise awareness and money for the Children of the Peak Sanctuary. We will ride 700 km (435 miles) in ten days. Help me out and donate as much as you can through the link on this page. For those who want to make it fun or challenge me further, I’ll commit to riding some days in a Mongolia saddle, the whole ride, if we get hit my goal. In fact, I’ll accept all reasonable challenges if that is what it takes to get you to help. This is a team effort, including you, so please donate today. Any amount is appreciated.
For those of you who are interested...this is something like what the Mongolian Saddle I am committing to ride in looks like! And yes...it's made out of wood...
I am taking part in the Gobi Gallop, raising money for the Children of the Peak Sanctuary in Mongolia.This program builds and maintains schools for children and their families that would otherwise have none. The Children of the Peak largely serves a community in Mongolia which is compelled to move from country to capital in order to survive without support or resources. To get by, whole families may have little choice but to scavenge. Children of the Peak reaches these families to help keep the children off the landfill. I’ve seen the landfill and the schools first hand and have been lucky enough to meet some of the families served by their good work. This is a worthwhile cause with real results.
