Meredith Cherry  NEVADA CITY, CA
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.

Good luck to both of you. We suggest you keep a note of items you set off with and later decided were not worth carrying, and share that list some time. When William had to dump stuff and later could have loaded it again, Strider was delighted that he didn't! Mind you, we travelled in much easier circumstances than you. In peace, and in agreement with your important cause, William and Strider
