Cathleen has traveled across Great Britain and Ireland with her two rescue draft horses, her Warmblood cross and her dog.

Today Cathleen is an experienced long-distance rider and has written and published two books about her journeys.
However, her biggest adventure is yet to come: Crossing Europe from West to East on Horseback, riding from Portugal to Romania with horses horses, her dog, her partner and a little, one-eyed mule. Currently marooned in Portugal due to the Corona lockdown, she is not deterred and has done a ride cross Portugal in autumn and winter and now hopes to set out towards Romania this spring.
