Robert Leese SWHP Charity Ride

August 09, 2013 (0:00AM)

Robert Leese came to see us back in the beginning of the year (2013) with his good friend Fiona to discuss an amazing ride he was contemplating doing over the Brecon Beacons with four unhandled horses over a period of a week. 

The aim of the ride was to handle and back all four horses on route and whilst doing so they wanted to raise money for our charity.  It was an amazing story and we were thrilled to have been chosen by Robert and his team to benefit from their endeavours.  Robert set up a fundraising page for us and posted updates on the page.  Please see http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/rlswhpcharityride if you would like to see his updates and to make a donation. There is also a short film on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gc5Kjy3TahA   Its really good please take a look.

Robert and his team completed the ride and did an amazing job in terrible weather conditions having to cope with thunder storms and torrential rain.  We would like to thank them all for their support of the SWHP and to say huge congratulations.  Please look at a selection of  the wonderful photographs taken during the ride.
