Team story

[p]Well we made it, ‘Vets with Horsepower’ has survived another tour:  3500 miles, twelve horse vets on large motorcycles, lectures in 8 countries![/p][p]Our goal this year was to conquer the Baltic countries, Western Russia and Scandinavia. 1000 miles of straight, butt flattening, EU funded motorway from Amsterdam to Warsaw (ridiculous Warsaw traffic partially offset by the beautiful early morning swim in a northern Polish lake), drivers in Lithuania insane, Latvia charming, Estonia has unpredictable moose. Russia sadly rejected two of the riders and almost swallowed one in a pot hole, but we managed to get through Finland, Sweden, Southern Norway and finally Denmark unscathed (the 8 km Oersted Bridge is indeed amazing).[/p][p]Our country hosts were quite wonderful but sadly too many to detail here, but a special mention does have to be made to Norway which raised an eye-watering €20,000![/p][p]By supporting these two charities we just saved a whole bunch of donkeys and children, and knowledge of that kept us going through many uncomfortable, mostly tedious, occasionally terrifying, hours on Northern European roads. Will you help us raise £100,000?[/p][p]With love and thanks,[/p][p]The Vets with Horsepower team[/p]
