    The Gobi March is part of the 4 Deserts, a unique worldwide endurance series, with nothing else like it! Each competitor must also carry with them, their own food and clothing in a backpack. The only assistance provided will be plenty of water, tents and medical assistance. The week-long trek begins June 14th, enduring 6 stages, crossing
    250km of the Gobi Desert.

    The Shire Horse Society was established in 1878 to promote the Old English Breed of Cart Horse. The last quarter-century has seen the regeneration of the Shire Horse. In their heyday, there was a heavy horse population of well over a million animals, but by the late 1950s and early 1960s this had dwindled to a few thousand. The Shire Horse Society, working with a growing number of breeders and enthusiasts, has gradually increased this population.
