The British Horse Society recently launched a campaign to raise funds for a vaccine against Grass Sickness, a devastating equine disease. Prevalent throughout the British Isles, it's fatal in both its acute and subacute forms and extremely distressing.
Along with the Equine Grass Sickness Fund and the Animal Health Trust, The British Horse Society is supporting pilot tests of a new vaccine which could eradicate this condition forever, but we need your help to raise money for a full clinical trial.
In light of this, the Pleasure Ride from Wootton will be in support of the Equine Grass Sickness Fund.
Routes of for seven, eleven or seventeen miles are offered, all on superb bridleways in a surprisingly rural location just to the west of Bedford.
There are some great canter opportunities along grassy headlands. Some roadwork on quiet country lanes.
Catering is available.
Rosettes for all.
Cost: £10 in advance (by 22nd August) or £15 on day.
For more information, please contact Ann Kennedy.
