Horse riders raise £2,000 for disability charity
A sponsored ride has raised more than £2,000 for the Riding for the Disabled charity.
The event was organised by the charity's Wellow group supporter Lyn Doman and the Saxon Dressage Group.
The ride marked the 25th anniversary of the Wellow group. On the day, there was good weather, clear blue skies and gentle breeze, and more than 100 riders took part in the cross country ride through the countryside around Wellow. Riders chose between a three-mile, eight-mile or 12-mile route, some of which was across private land, with the opportunity for long gallops and jumping in places.
The sum of £2,300 was raised, which included £176 raised by youngsters Tyler Doman and Malachi Doman. They presented a cheque to Pat Caudle, chairwoman of Wellow RDA.
