Promoting Horse Sports Around the World.

HorseJourney is going global. After driving wheelchair accessible horsedrawn carriages more than three thousand miles across the USA in 2001, the HorseJourney Team has visited seven countries. In 2007, HorseJourney heads Down Under for the first time, visiting New Zealand in May and June, then on to Australia in December 2007 and January 2008.

The mission is to expand the opportunities for outdoor recreation with horses throughout the world. We use the Access Adventure model to promote wilderness and open space access for people living with the challenges of disability. The HorseJourney Team networks with experienced local carriage drivers that have suitable horses for the work. We provide connections and plans for suitable, wheelchair accessible horsedrawn vehicles. Organizing the volunteers, with the support of local carriage driving clubs, provides fun, access to nature and much needed recreation for people who might not otherwise enjoy life outdoors.

Following New Zealand and Australia, long range plans call for HorseJourney treks in South America and Africa. (Margaret Mead said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, itís the only thing that ever has.")
