#Hack1000Miles relaunches this Thursday, 1 April, in line with the Spring issue of Your Horse going on sale, and there are exciting new developments — including milestone prizes.

Our international campaign is the first of its kind to champion all things hacking at a distance that is challenging, but extremely rewarding.

We’ve been on a mission to encourage people to get out more on their horse and be proud of every milestone, no matter how big or small, since 2017.

As #Hack1000Miles kicks off for its fifth year, we welcome new sponsor Equisafety on board as well as returning sponsor Wintec. It’s thanks to them that we are able to offer the following prizes…

The Prizes

  • Wintec saddle worth up to £1,249!
    Every challenger who hits the 1,000-mile target between 1 April 2021 and 31 March 2022 will be entered into a draw to win a Wintec saddle of their choice.
  • Wintec goodies
    Between 1 April and 31 October 2021, the Your Horse team will choose their favourite story from a #Hack1000Miles challenger to win a prize from Wintec. There’s one prize up for grabs each month, as follows:

      • A Wintec saddlecloth for three winners: one in April, one in May and one in June
      • A Wintec anatomic girth for one winner in August
      • A Wintec saddlebag for three winners: one in July, one in September and one in October

We also have spot prizes from Equisafety to give away. Keep sharing your hacking stories with us to be in for a chance to win!

Milestone rewards

  • 500 miles
    The first 275 challengers to reach the halfway mark — 500 miles — will receive a set of Equisafety high vis leg wraps or a high vis ear bonnet*.
  • 1,000 miles
    The first 60 challengers to cross the mighty 1,000-mile finish line will receive a money-can’t-buy Equisafety high vis neck band complete with #Hack1000Miles branding*.

Digital leaderboard

Coming soon — a live #Hack1000Miles leaderboard to keep an online tally of your miles and see how your total stacks up against everyone else.

For our competitive challengers, this will spur you on to get to the finish line. For those whose sole purpose is to have fun, keep it updated so that you’re eligible for milestone rewards and our new monthly prizes**.

Our trusty printed tracker card is as important as ever, so that you can keep a physical copy of your miles to hand, and is available with the Spring issue of Your Horse.

How to enter

The digital leaderboard, milestone rewards and monthly prizes will be available to claim/enter when the new Your Horse website goes live in April. Look out for updates on our homepage and social media.

To be eligible for all of the above, you will need to be a signed up member of #Hack1000Miles (it’s free!).

We’re bringing back our regular #Hack1000Miles e-newsletter, including the wall of fame. This is where we’ll announce prize winners and give shout outs to challengers as you reach certain milestones, so opt in to receive these if you don’t want to miss out.

The link to sign up will be announced online and social media, including in the Hack 1000 Miles Facebook group.
