On 16 September, over 50 riders enjoyed a wonderful ride around Barskimming Estate, Mauchline, Ayrshire. Most riders opted for the longer ride, while some riders did the shorter 5K ride. This was such a great opportunity to be able to ride around the grounds of Eglinton Horse Trials.
This was a sponsored ride and over £1800 was raised, which shall be split between the British Horse Society and Eglinton Horse Trials.
Botanica kindly donated two fabulous hampers for the best fundraiser in each section, which were won by Heather Allan and local BHS Accredited Professional Coach Angela Mulhearn. Heather raised over £200 which was fantastic, especially since Heather’s horse is kept within the estate.
Jet Set Equestrian provided lovely goody bags for all riders and Dodson & Horrell also sponsored the event by providing free bags of feed for all riders.
Thank you to the owners of the estate for allowing this organised ride to go ahead, to all our wonderful helpers who helped the day run so smoothly and to Ros Cartner for the excellent catering.
Keep an eye out for the 2019 date.
