Ever since her first long-distance ride in 2014, when she discovered how difficult it was to find comprehensive information to help her plan and execute her journey, Gillian has been committed to sharing what she has learned with others. While her personal focus has been on completing thru-rides of wilderness trails, Gillian understands that most people are mainly interested in being able to enjoy camping overnight in backcountry areas with their horse or mule . . . and maybe few friends, too. So, whether you are just beginning to explore equestrian camping, or making ambitious goals for long-distance travel, Gillian can help you gain the knowledge and skills you need to reach your goals.
