The 70/70/70 Challenge asks you to commit to attempting to ride 70 miles in 70 days and raising £70 for equine charities. It's just one of the ways you can get involved with the Horses4Health event this year.
Horses for Health is a fundraising event celebrating the positive effect equines have on our mental wellbeing. It's an opportunity to join the Horses4Health community, meet like-minded people, and raise money for HorseWorld, Riding for the Disabled Association, and a number of small equine welfare charities.
DO I NEED A HORSE TO TAKE PART?
No! You can be accompanied by your favourite equine and either ride, long-line, lead, or drive. But if you don't have a horse we welcome every horse lover so you can be on your own two feet, or even on two wheels!

You will then receieve your registration pack, full of loads of goodies plus everything you need to start fundraising. PLUS it will contain your wristband which enables you to sign up for our exclusive events which you can use towards achieving your 70 mile target.
Just by registering you are already supporting our charities as every penny of the profit from each pack will go straight to help horses in need.
Contained in the pack will also be:
- Information about the event
- Thank you Postcard
- £10 voucher for Equinexceed

WHICH CHARITIES WILL BENEFIT?
This year the event is supporting HorseWorld, Riding for the Disabled Association, and a number of smaller equine charities via our Equine Welfare Grants Scheme. Every penny you raise will go to helping horses in need.
WHY IS HORSES4HEALTH SO IMPORTANT?
Mental wellbeing has always been important, but the events of the last few years helped many of us realise the equines in our life were keeping us buoyant when life was dragging us down. Our horses are our best friends, counsellors, playmates, partners and teachers. Horses4Health is an opportunity to celebrate everything our horses do for us, whilst bringing together a supportive community of like-minded people, encouraging us all to make space for our own mental wellbeing in our hectic lives, and raising essential funds for equine welfare charities.
Together we are #PeopleHelpingHorsesHelpingPeople.
WHERE DOES HORSES FOR HEALTH TAKE PLACE?
It can take place wherever you are! There are exclusive organised events being added to the calendar every day for you to join, but you can also do your own thing. It’s up to you how you want to spend time with your favourite equine; hack, walk, drive, lead, come to a fun ride or go it alone. Why not take on the 70/70/70 challenge and hack 70 miles in 70 days and raise £70?
