Do you have goosebumps yet? In October 2016, team riders Sarah and Rose rode in the inaugural Race the Wild Coast from Port Edward to Kei Mouth in South Africa. Throughout the race, they and ten other riders were filmed on their journey... the product of which will be coming soon to your screens! Stay… Continue reading Racing the Wild Coast – Movie Coming Soon!
One of my favourite things is when a stranger (or sometimes friend) pops me an email or PM on Facebook and says "I am thinking about applying to (or have been accepted to) the Mongol Derby or Race the Wild Coast. Where do I even begin?" I love sharing the spirit of adventure with like-minded, or… Continue reading How to Prepare for an Ultra-Endurance Horse Race
Didn't see this one coming after my last post, The Downsides of Leading, did you? 😉 If you are just coming to this blog for the first time, Welcome! I know I have been doing a bit of a blitz for new followers and I really hope that you enjoy my writing and keep coming… Continue reading The Upsides of Leading
Throughout Race the Wild Coast, Sam, Monde and I led the group and we eventually dueled it out in a 500m sprint for the glory at the finish line. While it was very exciting to call myself a "leader" or "winner", this race was more about the adventure than a win. If you are considering entering… Continue reading The Downsides of Leading

I would like to introduce chaos with my posts about this race... because, well that is just what I feel like! So instead of telling you what happened when (Ashley did a pretty good job of… Continue reading Race the Wild Coast – Wrapup

Unfortunately Sam and Monde each lost a front shoe off of their horses at one of the checks, leaving Sarah to… Continue reading Day 4 of Race the Wild Coast (The Finish!)
Day 2 of Race the Wild Coast I hadn’t received my daily call/text from Sarah but from following the tracker and the RocketHorse Racing Facebook page, she has successfully completed Day 2. It was a little worrisome for a while as her tracker had stopped but the one on her horse was still going. Coupled… Continue reading Day 2 and Day 3 of Race The Wild Coast
The weather for the first day of the race was overcast and fairly uneventful. Sarah started off riding Gerber, her nice steady eddy, which was a very good strategic move as although Gerber is not the fastest horse, he is very surefooted and reliable, which came in handy when traversing the incredibly rocky terrain. While… Continue reading Day 1 of Race the Wild Coast
Race Training Race The Wild Coast officially kicks off tomorrow (Saturday) morning at 9am South Africa time or 3am EST. We get that you’re probably not that hard-core about getting up at 3am to watch Sarah’s tracker on the live stream (http://rockethorse.sportraxs.com/) but keep an eye on our website and our Facebook page for updates… Continue reading Pre-Race Training
