EuroTrike Pony Adventure Part OneHi Everyone, Love your pony,
This summer I cycled 1034km across Europe following the Rhine river from Basel (Switzerland) all the way through France, Germany and finishing in the Netherlands. I took with me my two miniature ponies Percy (spotty) and Stan (Chestnut) as well as my little Dachshund dog Inca. Our trip raised money for the working horse charity The Brooke. I hope you enjoy part one, part two will be out next week. Thank you for watching! Emx

My horses make me smile every single day, it's going to be fun to share our adventure across social media and my website www.emmamassingale.com for more information do check it out! Emx

The power of a smile.
Three years of full time adventure and ten years of creating media content, I have learnt that one of the most rewarding things is to be able to make other people smile! If we can also back this up with some fun horsemanship and an epic adventure then it’s something worth getting pretty excited about!
I knew this year I wanted to do an adventure that included my miniatures…but where to start as they are too small to ride and have very short legs, not ideal for travelling long distances! I knew it had to be something personally challenging for me but fun and easy for the ponies.
Throughout history we have needed horses to pull or carry us but what now if in the 21st Century these little horses could have one simple role, to make people smile! My horses make me smile everyday, this is not only incredible therapy but has helped me become the horsewomen I am today. Horses recognise facial expressions, I have said for many years that as crazy as it sounds just smiling at your horse can help form greater friendships and if they like us more they are going to perform better for us in any situation.
I am going to take my two untrained miniatures, one Miniature Horse (Percy – Appaloosa) and one Miniature Shetland Pony (Stanley) 1000 km across Europe on an epic adventure. I shall be cycling along with my minis in a purpose built tricycle across 4 countries through Europe with two main objectives in mind, to give everyone we meet and those may like to follow us online their daily smile…(it’s impossible not to!) and to have an epic adventure that challenges me both physically and mentally as I can assure you that cycling along with two horses on board isn’t easy! Stanley, Percy and I shall camp each night under the stars.
I have chosen two untrained ponies for this adventure as I wanted to be able to share my style of training as we go, I wanted to be able to share how getting out of the arena and putting yourself a little out of your comfort zone is a great way of working with horses.
