The ride was a massive success with one endurance rider summing the day up “Fantastic endurance from Richmond Equestrian Centre, lots of lovely long canters and gallops over picture postcard parkland.”
More importantly, and the reason Nicky and Linsey organised the ride, was to raise funds for the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) and at the end of the day they were able to hand a donation over to Cass O’Brien from the local Bedale Branch for £500. The photo shows her accepting a cheque from Nicky Pink for £400 and after the event another £100 was also very kindly donated.
Nicky says “We are flabbergastered at how generous people have been … way to go! I would especially like to thank the landowners who gave us permission to ride across their land, without them this ride wouldn’t have happened at all and we would also like to give a big thank you to all the people at Richmond Equestrian Centre.”
Cass said “It was a generous gesture, we are going to use the money to send two RDA pupils for a riding holiday and we’re really looking forward to working with the Durham & Teesside Group of Endurance again next year.”
Another member of the Durham & Teesside Group said “It was a fantastic ride, made even more fantastic because you know that you’re raising funds for such a worthwhile cause, I hope the RDA riders have an absolutely wonderful time on their holiday.”
