“Thanks to everyone who took part and everyone who helped” says Minette Rice Edwards and please look out for our summer holiday Kids’ Club events, which will be starting soon.

Then the 160 -plus guests were treated to a concert from David and his colleagues, Viv McLean and Rowena Calvert.  A auction has held and this together with the proceeds from tickets sales has so far, enabled a donation of £5,000.00 to be promised to Operation Centaur.

Riding is a wonderful form of exercise

Talking of planning ahead, scientists speaking at the American Association for the Advancement of Science, said that physical exercise is as important as mental exercise in promoting a healthy long life. The Times actually quoted the researchers as saying that exercise is essential to “grow back your brain”!

Hoof, the Olympic Legacy equestrian web site, has lots of interesting, up to date information about the health benefits of riding.
