An Andean adventure

John Labouchere
Wednesday, 6 Dec 1995
Sports House
A farmer and toymaker specialising in rocking horses and, by his own admission, not a natural traveller, John regaled the audience with the story of his 5,500 mile horse trek from Buenos Aires to Lake Titicaca. When one horse jumped off the trail, John was hospitalised and given 140 stitches, but one month later he climbed into the saddle again and rode on to complete his journey.
