Guest Speakers:

Horseback adventurer and trail setter Louis Hall comes to Penrith!

Blundstone ambassador Louis Hall is a writer, rider and explorer from Scotland. Aged 18, he first discovered the power of the horse while in search of a tribe in northern Mongolia. Since then he has gone on to ride the length of the UK and across Europe in aid of charitable causes. In 2022 Louis created the first conclusive horse trail across the Ligurian Alps, on his way from Siena, Italy to Cape Finisterre in Spain. He now has his eyes set on America and the Silk Road.

In 2020 Louis founded The Big Hoof – a charity promoting adventure and wellbeing through long distance rides. So far, his charity has travelled over 4000 km in 5 different countries, raising over £70,000 for causes centred on mental health, wellbeing and child welfare.

Join Louis on stage as he shares his remarkable story.
