Jane Dotchin travels on horseback every year with her beloved dog.
Jane Dochin travels on horseback every year from her home in Hexham to Inverness, Scotland. On August 31 he left with his dog Dinky.
It all started in 1972. Jane Dotchin harnessed her horse and rode 600 miles (nearly 965 kilometers) through the Scottish countryside. The explorer, who is now 80 years old, has not lost his ambition, perseverance and desire to travel. Despite his advanced age, he observes this custom every year.
In late August, she grabbed her backpack and climbed onto the back of her 13-year-old horse, Diamond. The woman placed her handicapped Jack Russell in front of her Dinky. Thus, the inseparable trinity travels 15 to 20 miles (approximately 24 to 32 kilometers) a day.
Since her first foray nearly 50 years ago, Jane Dotchin has traveled the country on horseback. This epic journey usually lasts 7 weeks.
“Depending on the weather, I can take several different routes,” she said. During this journey, a small group settles for very little. The water is greatly replenished by streams.
