"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)

"Adventure with A Mission" A rider's reflection of her journey.

By Pamela West. Special to The Washington Post

We have galloped a mile through the Great Thar Desert in Rajasthan, northwest India. I grit my teeth and hug the neck of my sturdy Marwari horse as it races up a steep dune. We pause at the crest. Below is a near-vertical cliff of sand. A wind comes at us sideways, unfurling our group's orange and red flag.

I lean back in my cavalry saddle and test my stirrups. We're going down.

I ride the slide. In seconds we're at the bottom of the dune. I wasn't even scared.

But that was Day 7. I didn't start out fearless. Click here to read more on this article...




There are still spaces available on our Pushkar Relief Ride and we hope you will consider joining us on our Maiden Journey from Pokran Fort To Nagaur Fort. This itinerary marks the furthest west we will have ever started a Relief Ride in the Thar Desert. Incredible landscapes and riding terrain are in store for us!
