Route for the 2012 Caravan of Hope
The SLL White Horses charity is a Franco-British registered charity with humanitarian, social and environmentally conscious aims.
SLL selects horses from the Camargue in southern France from where they are ridden across France and England by a team including disadvantaged youngsters and are finally, after this long 6 month journey of 1800 kms and 85 overnight stops, donated to Riding for the Disabled centres in England and France.
With the experience of the 2005 and 2008 projects, the SLL 2012 Caravan of Hope once again unites young people and horses in aid of children and adults with disabilities.
