"In my field of travel writing, the description 'life-changing' is bandied about loosely, but I could not be more sincere when I say this trip (February 2007 Nagaur Relief Ride) changed my life." (read more) -- Andrew Mersmann, author of Frommer's "500 Places Where You Can Make a Difference"

Join us this November on a remarkable Relief Ride that will take you on the adventure of a lifetime to the world's largest horse and camel fair in the sacred village of Pushkar.
Our first ever Pushkar Relief Ride will take us on a breathtaking journey from the historic 16th century Khimsar Fort, perched on the edge of the Thar Desert, through remote villages where we will perform our humanitarian programs to the Pushkar Camel fair - the largest gathering of horses and camels in the world.
Pushkar, considered one of India's oldest and most devout spiritual towns, is home to the only Bhrama Temple in northern India. Once a year, in reverence of India's most auspicious lunar period, this normally serene village, comes alive with vibrance, color and spiritual celebration set against the backdrop of the world's most exotic horse and camel fair.
Imagine the energy and excitement of 10,000 horses and 40,000 camels, brightly adorned and engaged in fiery competition and eclectic performances based on centuries old traditions, their owners vying for the perfect trade or the highest bid.
Our Relief Ride offers the unique opportunity to impact the lives of rural communities in need and to experience one of India's most iconic spiritual and cultural events on horseback.
Join us on what promises to be a meaningful adventure as we ride to the village of Pushkar this coming November.
