Doc reckons the best tip he received for long distance horse trekking came from Dan Seymour - "never go past a good feed". It's a simple tip but one to live by. "If after riding 10 km you come across a camp with good feed and water, stop. It's a journey of time not of distance. Don't push your horses another 20 km to find the feed is poor. It's just not worth passing a good feed, ever."
