The Long Riders' Guild

A Journey to Santiago de Compostelle


Jules Phillips and Lucinda Munchhausen have just set off on a journey across France and Northern Spain to Santiago de Compostella. 


July 2008:  Sadly, Jules and Lucinda have been forced to cancel their journey due to emergencies and illness - one horse went lame and another was bitten by a snake.  As Lucinda wrote to The Guild: 

"I think the hardest day for me was when Lotus was bitten by the snake: it was something I knew could happen  but didn't prepare myself for the helpless feeling whilst waiting for the vet that never turned up, I could have kissed the French vet that came to our aid - I have never been so happy to see someone.
I was very disappointed to not be able to continue but as you have probably learnt in our blogs for me my horses are very important more important than a destination and as Odi was lame the decision was made for us.  I am so proud of the horses - not once did they object to any situation, they gave their all and were far more courageous than us."
