Last month NTU Equestrian club held a fun and exciting fundraising event in memory of their much loved and fellow Equestrian club member Rosie Carter who unfortunately passed away recently.
The girls were dressed in pink to remember Rosie and the fundraising commenced at 12pm at Fairview Equestrian in Ravenshead. The event consisted of many activities including jumping and other games.
Two of Rosies’ friends Alex Loveday and Rikesh Kanabar who had never ridden before approached Hayley, one of Fairview's in house instructors, in November last year with a challenge....they wanted her to get them up to the standard of being able to walk, trot, canter and jump a course of fences by Easter! This was to raise money for Rosie's charity, and after a maximum of just one hour group lesson a week during term time, a few wobbles here and there, and lots of determination they managed to achieve what they had set out to do. They debuted their progress at this event with great success with them both completing a course of fences and going clear, with the added pressure of lots of NTU Equestrian riders watching and their friends!...Well done boys!
All the funds raised from the day’s event went towards the Young Epilepsy Organisation that aims to better the lives of children and young people who suffer from epilepsy (like Rosie did).
NTU Equestrian and Fairview Farm managed to successfully raise £500 for the charity! A big thank you to everybody involved!
