The Farleigh House Charity Ride day is drawing closer. Just over a week to go. I have been out on the Ride route today. The estate is in good order with harvesting taking place, the scenery wonderful and views to the south look stunning.
There is a lot of wildlife flying and moving about. As a taster I have seen the obligatory rabbits, butterflies of varying varieties and colours. Kite and other birds of prey fly high and low!! Deer are leaping about.
So why not come and see for yourself on Sunday 4th September? Spend a couple of hours riding around the estate knowing that your ride fee is going to support three well deserving charities.
Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, Neighbourcare and Riding for the Disabled
The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance display unit will be present to talk about the work of the air ambulance which is charitable organisation and relies solely on donations and sponsorship. It is a 24/7 emergency response service and you never know when you or someone close to you may need the air ambulance to airlift you to hospital. As horse riders you will appreciate the fact that equine related injuries can happen anytime any place.
Be generous and come and take part in the Farleigh House Charity Cross Country Ride.
Best wishes – David Collings
