On horseback

These are just some examples of ideas for aims. You and your team should create an aim that is personal and interesting to you – and suitable for your expedition area and mode of travel.


  • Create a card for each team member at the end of your expedition, saying why they added to the teams success
  • Produce a ‘top-tips’ guide for working as a team on horseback
  • Write a play script which represents your team experience and perform it as your expedition presentation
  • Make notes of your team experiences and present it in the form of a radio broadcast


  • Investigate dams in the Pennines and describe their purpose
  • Explore unspoilt beaches and record sea life that you spot
  • Note plants you see en route and which ones are medicinal or can be eaten
  • Create some artwork to demonstrate the different wildlife and environment you can see on horseback compared to on foot


  • Travel between isolated historical monuments or buildings and investigate their previous use or function
  • Find and record examples of ancient constructions, such as bridges and dry stone walls
  • Investigate civil war battle sites and learn about the use of the cavalry
  • Plan a route to visit and photograph deserted villages in Scotland


  • Explore the use of horses in current farming practices
  • Produce a poster to promote your route to other visitors
  • Cook food from different cultures and compare the flavours
  • Take photographs of your horses and each other and exhibit them at your presentation
