I am riding on Horseback from Southern Denmark via Germany and France to Southern Spain. I hope to rely on the goodwill of farmers for an overnight camp spot and grazing for my two horses. But what about forest and wilderness areas? I am an experienced wilderness traveller and believe in the adage "Take nothing but your photos and memories and leave nothing but your footprints (HOOF prints)

    OK, so what exactly is your question? – Benedikt Bauer Dec 19 '15 at 19:23
  • Just out of curiosity: how do you handle the veterinary papers for all the border crossings? That's a major hassle for even one border. I assume that you have to get a new health certificate for each border crossing? – Thomas Stets Dec 21 '15 at 12:52
  • * Is the horse coming from a European Union country? * Are you going through non European Union countries? * Does the horse already have a certificate from a European vet? * Does the horse have a passport? You may wish to contact someone on this site ec.europa.eu Here is a page for horses on the above site ec.europa.eu/food/animals/identification/equine/index_en.htm – Deirdra Strangio Dec 24 '15 at 6:28
