This is Jamie’s story in his own words:
It was about this time last year when Maudy and I came up with the plan to enter the Mongol Derby which is starting on the 6th August 2014. In all honesty neither of us expected to get past the interview stage let alone make the final cut of 45 riders.
Rather naively, at first I thought it would just be a straight forward ride across the plains of Mongolia with one of my closest friends. However, from my delayed research, I have learnt that we are in for a much tougher challenge. Dubbed the longest horse race on the planet, The Mongol Derby is certainly the toughest as we covered 1000km in just ten days.
Clare Milford Haven very kindly agreed to let me ride for the James Wentworth Stanley Memorial Fund, it was a real honour for me to do so, and I am hugley excited to be able to support them. James and I enjoyed some great times together in Argentina and indeed at home playing polo at Cowdray. I truly hope that you can all get behind me and support the cause by spreading the word amongst your friends and family, and by donating something towards this very worthy charity.
