Here's the story behind this .....Our local pack of Basset Hounds needs some help with funding.
SO, after 30 odd years of being Debra's partner and putting up with horses generally being involved with mucking out, driving the horses to shows ,meets, tacking up, poo picking , grooming , boot cleaning and paying for the partner and daughters lifestyle....BUT never having the urge to ride.
Steve has now decided that he will do his crazy bit and mount one of the family steads to attempt an endurance ride of around 2 hours.
The Albany Bassets
The pack consists of 10 couple of hounds all living together as a working pack. The great pleasure of hunting with Basset Hounds is that in comparison with other hound breeds they are a slow and methodical mover. This enables the hunt staff and supporters to keep in contact and see the hounds work as the Basset unravels the line of the scent. Secondly it is the tremendous voice of the Basset as it hunts. A clamour of a pack of Bassets in full cry has no equal in hunting 1 Thirdly it is the unique character and appearance of this lovely ancient breed working in the countryside.
The Willberry Wonder Pony Charity
Hannah Francis a 17 year old who was diagnosed with an aggressive bone cancer and sadly passed away. Hannah had hope of becoming a top eventer. Hannah has fought to make Willberry Wonder Pony as big as possible . There was a huge groundswell of support for Hannah and Willberry as they told their story - and found that it became an opportunity to help other people learn about living with the awful disease, so all efforts turn towards setting up a formal charity, now known as Hannah's Willberry Wonder Pony Charity. The charity was finally registered on the 29th March 2016, number 1166416. Please visit the website for further information.
