BHS Scotland and The BHS Welfare Department have joined forces with the Equine Grass Sickness Fund (EGSF) for a platinum ride in 2018 that celebrates 70 years of The British Horse Society and 30 years of the EGSF. This year the event will have a few added touches to be revealed shortly aimed to raise the profile of the work being done to combat grass sickness and educate horse owners as well as entertain in a gentile royal fashion.
Both charities are delighted that Her Majesty The Queen has granted permission for a sponsored ride to take place at Balmoral on Sunday the 27 May.
BHS Scotland Chairman Sarah Jayne Bowers said: “The wonderful thing about Balmoral is the beauty of the route we are planning it follows wonderfully surfaced estate tracks into the foothills of Lochnagar and returns through magnificent ancient Caledonian Forest. The views of Royal Deeside are stunning and it will just be a spectacular day out for everyone who takes part.”
There is a choice of routes one 15km in length and one 5km. The ride is in aid of equine grass sickness.
