This not the end, nor is it the beginning of the end. It is the end of the beginning.

At the limits of endurance
Forged from the basics of good old-fashioned horsemanship and high tech innovation. Endurance riding, the sport of a million steps, isn’t for the faint hearted. At its purest level or at the peak of competitive distances, it is the ultimate challenge of horse and rider against the natural elements.

Drinking the Wind - is the extraordinary and inspiring version of one man’s recovery from a sudden and debilitating illness, an encounter with a ghostly horse that was to change his life and the progression to become a successful EGB competitive endurance rider. This story is about courage, determination and the tough, intense, often unforgiving conditioning required to prepare a horse and rider for the extremes of endurance. This is a remarkable account of the formidable bond forged between the rider and his pure bred Arabian horse and their combined battle for success in the first Trans Scotland 200 miles Endurance Ride.
