The Long Horse Ride
is a journey on horseback from Beijing to London. It started out shortly after the closing ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and is scheduled to arrive in London in time for the 2012 London Olympics.
The ride will bring a message of goodwill from Beijing in the Beijing Olympic year to London in the London Olympic year. It also aims to raise money for disadvantaged children through its chosen charity Schoolchildren For Children
There is a pony on The Long Horseride called 'Zorbee,' and you can read more about his adventures along the way here, or by checking their web site
