New CEA website header with star billing for me and our new team member Li Jing, a Chinese horseman and ex librarian who has already built up quite a reputation for his horseback travels in Russia and China. He has been cutting quite a dash in Beijing by sweeping down from the north like a modern day Mongol, cloak billowing behind him.

I have now actually booked my flight out to Beijing for April 5th to arrive on the morning of the 6th. This gives nearly two weeks to gird up my loins before the start of the next leg of the Long Horse Ride on the April 18th. This has been set to coincide with the Guangting reservoir Endurance Ride.
And here are my new Just Chaps, especially designed for the ride, and the ultimate in equestrian sartorial elegance. Black wih red piping, they sport Union Jack and Chinese flag on opposing legs. They are excellent quality, and extremely comfortable. I can't wait to show them off at the start of the ride next month! See http://www.justchaps.com/ for their range of colourful chaps for every occasion.
