  The Long Riders' Guild - New Energy and New Ideas for a New Millennium!

 

Welcome to The Long Riders' Guild.

Part expedition journal, historical museum, book store, tack room and Guild Hall, this website is constantly revised and updated with knowledge gathered from around the world, making it the ultimate source of information regarding equestrian exploration and long-distance travel.

A visit inside will introduce you to the amazing men and women who have ridden horses in search of mounted adventure in every conceivable country and climate, ranging from Africa to Antarctica. For the first time ever, a host of these Long Riders have shared their "Stories From the Road" to inspire and educate you. You may ride alongside Equestrian Expeditions currently out on the road or watch those preparing to set off into the unknown. If you are planning an expedition, then study our Equipment pages for independent first-hand information gathered from Long Riders in more than forty countries. Enjoy the largest selection of equestrian travel titles in the world.  Or visit the Long Riders’ Guild Academic Foundation to inspect a vast array of important equestrian wisdom and history.

Our goal is to demonstrate that you and your horse can undertake a life-changing equestrian journey of your own. That is why this massive website is a commercial-free, open source of information designed for global distribution. It is a gift to the world from the equestrian Argonauts who are Members of The Long Riders' Guild.

If, after visiting these pages, we have inspired you to set off on a Long Ride of your own, then we have achieved our aim!
