CuChullaine OíReilly has spent more than twenty years studying equestrian travel techniques on four continents. A Founding Member of The Long Ridersí Guild, he made lengthy trips by horseback across Afghanistan and Pakistan before leading the Karakorum Equestrian Expedition through five mountain ranges, including the Himalayas, and traversing the Diamer Desert, thereby setting the record for the longest recorded horseback ride in Pakistanís history. CuChullaine was thereafter made a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. He is the author of Khyber Knights, the thrilling tale of his adventures in Pakistan, The Long Riders, the world's first equestrian travel anthology, The Horse Travel Journal and The Horse Travel Handbook. During the course of one of his equestrian journeys CuChullaine was tortured and illegally imprisoned in Pakistanís notorious ĎPindi Prison.
