Testimonials 2023

Lucy Boultbee-Brooks

I was lucky enough to get a place in the BHS Charity race which was an absolutely fantastic experience, and loved every minute. I would recommend it anyone thinking about giving it a go. I have met some lovely people along the way and every rider is very supportive of each other. A massive thank you to the BHS!

Ayesha Mumtaz

To take part it  was truly a dream come true. I am so proud to have raised so much money for such a great cause. It was such a fantastic experience.

Natalie King

I’ve genuinely got so much from this race, not just confidence in the saddle, but a real zest for life that I was missing before.

Steph Davies

The whole day felt so special, from the weighing room and the paddock beforehand, to the excitement and adrenaline of the race itself, and then sharing it with my friends and family afterwards.

Ruth Reay

To have got to compete on Raceday (getting on and getting to the start were my main concerns!) and to actually finish 2nd, I am over the moon and a great memory that I will think of very fondly!  Thank you to the BHS for this opportunity.

Amelia McArthur 

The level of challenge is matched (and exceeded) by the sense of achievement when you cross the finish line. It was a life goal to take part in a charity race and I feel privileged to have ridden such a fantastic horse to the win.

Emma Devoy

The BHS Charity Horse Race has been the most fantastic experience which pushed me out of my comfort zone more than I expected
