Story


On the 7th November I will be attempting to ride in (and complete!) a 1 mile charity flat race. 

The charity I have chosen to support is the British Horse Society and specifically their 'changing lives through horses' projects. 

The Changing Lives Through Horses programme uses horses as the inspiration for change in young peoples lives. The programme provides an alternative learning environment to mainstream education. Focusing on six key skills of communication, confidence, relationships, teamwork, responsibility and personal achievement. 

Over the last 10 years this is an area that my mother has devoted herself to in her role as an Equine Facilitated Practitioner. Helping children who can not be in main stream education to develop key life and social skills through interaction with horses. Having heard about some of the breakthrough success of my mother and her colleagues I firmly believe that programmes such as Changing Lives Through Horses should be supported on a national basis. 

I strongly believe there is a place for equine based learning, not least in the racing and breeding industries where those dedicated enough can have a career for life with excellent prospects and progression. 

So please follow me on what will no doubt be a true spectator sport of a journey. At the outset I can almost guarantee laughter(for you), thrills, spills, blood and tears...all for a good cause!
