The fun ride was started by Sara
Newton then taken
over by Lions in 2012.
Sara still deals with all things equestrian as Lions know very little about horses other than they are related to Zebras, (a good food source).
We run the event to raise money for Cornwall
Hospice Care (Mount Edgcumbe).
The route is approximately 10 miles with a mixture of moors, pasture, roads & woodland, it's not a race so you can ride according to your & your horses ability. If you like a good gallop there are opportunities along the way. The route will be marshaled where it meets the road for your safety, we will also record your allocated rider number just incase you get lost or have an accident, we will know where to start looking.
The presentation to Cornwall hospice took place at our meeting on 3rd oct 2016
Once again we are happy to report a very successful event on Sunday
Some 65 riders took part in a delightful ride over 10 miles of Bodmin countryside often not normally available to the public.
All participants seemed to enjoy themselves and said how much they appreciated the arrangements made by the Lions. With the help of Lloyd's Bank match funding, £1395 was raised for the benefit of Cornwall Hospice Care.
We are very grateful to local landowners for their cooperation and especially to Gerald Worden for allowing us to use his field as a start and finish venue at short notice.
