About

 

Meredith and Apollo
Meredith and Apollo

 

The Centauride: Riding for Domestic Violence Awareness is a four year horseback journey around the USA.

Meredith Cherry and her palomino horse Apollo will travel to 48 state capitals and countless DV centers, women’s shelters, schools and community centers to bring awareness about this “silent epidemic” and to provide hope to women dealing with the effects of DV in their own lives.

Meredith and Apollo will be filming their route of approximately 14,000 miles. This will be the first ride to all 48 states to be made by a woman; two similar rides were successfully completed in early 1900’s. This epic journey is scheduled to begin on October 1, 2016 and be completed in 2020.

Planned route
Planned route

 

We have been preparing for over two years, with training, fitness, planning, and otherwise getting ready for a horseback ride that will take as long as earning a college degree, over a route exceeding the distance between the north and south poles.

One woman. One horse. One goal: 48 states for Domestic Violence Awareness.

Regarding the estimated delivery of rewards: newsletters will begin in July and will be sent approximately monthly. Other rewards will be sent as they become available: postcards in early 2017, dvd, book, photos in 2020. Rewards involving meeting myself and Apollo via Skype or in person will be scheduled with each person based on route and your preferences.

Risks and challenges

Actual distance, timing, and other logistics will be constantly changing through the ride as factors such as road conditions, weather, detours, emergencies, long winters, short winters, tired feet, and random stuff that will undoubtedly happen during a 14,000 mile journey will affect these estimates. However, the biggest risk is in the timing of completing the ride and film, NOT in whether it gets done at all. All challenges will be dealt with and frequent updates provided throughout the ride.
