Horse Drawn Caravan Journey through Europe
We can actually see the grass grow.
The sweet smell of beautiful flowers, the sun shines.
What else do we want in life?
“Life is too beautiful to be limited in goals!”
A Dutch couple, travelling in a horse drawn caravan.
This is the website of John and Thea Verhoeckx
February 2007 we sold our house, gave a friendly goodbye to the boss and bought a draft horse carriage.
Now, this horse drawn caravan, named Slow Express, is our home
for the next years to come.
We’re travelling from the North Sea, without a goal, towards South-East Europe. Here you can find the background of our equestrian journey.
We will cover all the important subjects. From the caravan techniques, till the all day chores and tasks. Especially expressing our wondering about what happens every day.
The stars of our journey obviously are our two Haflinger horses. Without them we do not have a journey. Therefore, the credits are for them.
Let us introduce the two ladies! Aysha a 12-year-old mare, born in Austria and a perfect example of her breed “the Austrian Haflinger”. Aysha works hard and always react to the driver.
Isabella is her 7 years old daughter. Part Haflinger and part Noriker. Young and a bit naughty, inexperienced to pull a Caravan. No problem we will have plenty of time to cover that!
Last but not least
Finally, yet importantly, Viënna a parcel Jack Russell, from the tip of her ears until the top of her tale. Always jumping around us, digging for mousses and never wins!
This site is constantly changing, so return regularly! It’s just like real life.
It won’t be a day-to-day diary but more of a report of our impressions that we walk into. We both like to write and try to do so in turns, or when one of us has inspiration. Famous words on the Slow Express horse drawn caravan are:
