They say you can prove anything with numbers, and in the FEIF world, too, statistics suggest surprising stories. Riders from 13 member countries are well on their way to Herning. Together, 140 riders have covered almost 30,000 km since the ride started in November 2014. Currently with a total of 6412 ridden km the UK is in the lead, followed by NZ (5830km) and Germany (4691km). The medal places for the average distance per rider since November are gold to New Zealand with an astonishing 489km; silver for Finland with 236km, and bronze for Romania with 199km. But most importantly, horses and riders are having a lot of fun, and forming new friendships along the way.
