The Centauride: Riding for Domestic Violence Awareness is a four year horseback journey around the USA.

Meredith Cherry and her palomino horse Apollo will travel to 48 state capitals and countless DV centers, women’s shelters, schools and community centers to bring awareness about this “silent epidemic” and to provide hope to women dealing with the effects of DV in their own lives.

Meredith and Apollo will traveling approximately 14,000 miles. This will be the first ride to all 48 states to be made by a woman; two similar rides were successfully completed in early 1900’s. This epic journey is scheduled to begin on January 1, 2017 and be completed in 2020.

We have been preparing for over two years, with training, fitness, planning, and otherwise getting ready for a horseback ride that will take as long as earning a college degree, over a route exceeding the distance between the north and south poles.

One woman. One horse. One goal: 48 states for Domestic Violence Awareness.

Apollo and I have been back on the road for almost two months now, on our third year of riding. This week we did a little something special- the Donut Trail in Ohio! It was a fun detour from our usual plans, but now we’re getting back to business and heading straight east across the state. Next up, WV and PA!

This cause has gotten more attention over the years but still needs so much more. The stigma and shame needs to go away and thanks to you Meredith Cherry for trying to help in such a unique way!

A journey that is meant to bring awareness to domestic abuse in any form, it got my attention. Ms. Cherry is not going around asking for donations, I respect that. I challenge my friends and family to make a small donation, $10 ?? Can we not offer a little bit just to say thank you for your journey? You may not even know that someone in your circle has suffered abuse.
