With the relaunch of #Hack1000Miles we thought it would be a great opportunity to take a little look back and jog our memories of some of the fab hacks you have shared with us.
Obviously there are a lot more than we could fit onto one gallery, and we can’t wait to see even more adventures this year, so keep on posting your pictures – we love to see them!

Liz Leslie – “When my 26-year-old horse Desi pulled his collateral ligament I thought I wouldn’t ever ride him again. The day the vet said he could be hacked out I was so happy.”
Sam Bateman – “Since joining in June last year my motivation has been boosted tremendously. It really makes me get out and hack. Knowing I'm not alone with naughty horse and confidence issues is reassuring too.”
Denise Meldrum – “I love finding routes in different areas. These hills are about an hour away from where we live, but the views are fab.”
Cha Chaudhary – “I love seeing everyone’s updates and love how supportive the #Hack1000miles community is.”
Mike Mills – “At the end of 12 months (April to end of March) I did 1116.35 miles and mostly on one horse. Roll on 2019 #hack1000miles!”
Tammy Goldstein – “My beautiful sister suffers terribly with depression, we didn’t make it to 1000 by April, but hack 1000 is more than that to me – it lets me see my sister smile and leave her troubles behind for a while.”
Madelaine Burnett – “Hacking is my absolute favourite thing to do. I get to enjoy the countryside and wildlife with my best friend and go as fast or slow as we want. I talk to her all the way and she loves it as much as I do.”
Shauna Fowles – “Now the summers coming we should be able to go faster and further! Not to mention entering sponsored ride season.”
Kirsty Powell – “New shoes on the mini man so now he has no excuse – he has shoes, we have his new cart and harness, we are ready to go!”
Elaine Rannie – “I finished this year’s challenge on a high. 1575 miles ridden since 1 April 2018, looking forward to starting again.”
Lisa Lidehäll – “I really feel my mood improving each day. These days I wish I had more horses because I just want to ride.”
