Riders on The Waterberg Trust Challenge Ride 2016 could never have made it –
without the help of a gallant back-up crew who brought along food for the horses, cool drinks and the baggage. This included tables and chairs!
Lunch cooked in the bush was much appreciated
as riders were hungry and the food fresh.
Those looking after the horses took it in turns to ride the spare horses.
The days were long and could be hot
but members of the support crew were able to find time to enjoy the bush and even take a dip in the Palala River
One of the biggest tasks was trailing the horses home again at the end of the ride.
We are really appreciative of this along with all the work that went into planning the ride and ensuring it was such a success. Our thanks go to the team at Ant’s Nest and Ant’s Hill as well as all those who helped at Kwalata, Lapalala Wilderness and Jembisa game reserves.
