Calling all horse riders! On Saturday 9th June we are looking for people to take on a brand new challenge- Ride Out for Raystede!
You can ride in any location and any distance; all we ask is that you hop on your horse and have a hack in the sunshine. We have a number of participating pubs (see below) so you and your horse can take a break, have a drink with friends and meet other supporters of Raystede too.
To take part in this terrific challenge we are asking that you pay £3 to register and that adults try to raise £50 and children try to reach a £25 target. We will offer the highest fundraiser a delicious cream tea for two from Cafe Raystede and the opportunity to meet our equine manager and some of the equine residents.
To book on follow this link. After signing up you will receive a special high vis tabard saying 'Ride 4 Raystede' as well as a welcome pack full of fundraising ideas to help you raise your target. We will support you on the lead up to the event and on the day itself. After completing your challenge your horse will receive their very own Raystede rosette and you will receive a certificate to recognise your amazing contribution to the animals.
You will also be able to chat with supporters and Raystede staff online on the lead up to the challenge, and on the day we'd love to see as many of you as possible upload your own photos to our Facebook site and Twitter pages.
So, why not get a group of mates together and make a day of it. If you're a lone rider don't worry, we can put you in touch with other people riding out for Raystede.
Even if you're not a rider you can still support Raystede during Horse Month by buying our equine herd a present off the wish list. Or you can sponsor our riders for their challenge by visiting this justgiving link.
