Allan the horse will walk with us

45 hikers - and a horse. Those are the participants in the first edition of Coast2Coast Sweden.

The name of the horse is Al Istair, a nine year old Swedish warmblood, by Royal Diamond and Epson, with the homestable in Stavsborg on Ekerö, outside Stockholm. Al Istair, with the nickname ”Allan”, brings his owner Göran Ronsten along as company.

”I'll walk next to him. It's a good way to get to know Allan better,” says Göran Ronsten.

The biggest challenge for the equipage Ronsten/Allan is that they need someone to drive their horse transport between every stop on the 400 km long trail from Kalmar to Varberg.

”If I can't find a driver I'll drive the transport myself to the end of the stage and then walk and meet the other hikers,” says Göran Ronsten.

Allan is keen to have company by other horses at night. 

”If anybody out there has a horsebox to lease for a night, please let me know,” says Göran Ronsten.

You can reach him at through Jonas Hållén at or +46 708 866 844.
