Gear 

All of the gear for this trip has been provided by our generous and high quality sponsors. Our pack horse gear has been provided by Outfitters Supply. Our bridle and halters are donated by Natural Equipment, our camping gear from Sea to Summit, and our food from Camper's Pantry. The Australian Stock Saddle Museum and Equestrian Centre (opening in 2019 outside of Melbourne) has funded two custom made saddles by Cliff Killeen and Tony Gifford. I am very grateful to these amazing sponsors for their help! Please email me for a detailed gear list.
