Horse riding event in memory of much-loved Warwickshire woman

About 150 horse riders took to the fields around Kineton on Sunday August 21 to help raise a whopping £2,700 in memory of Liz Jackson.

The money will be split between the Stratford upon Avon Riding for the Disabled Group and the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.

The Fun Ride was the brainchild of Kineton farm owner Bronwen Hurley in memory of her friend and Riding for Disabled Association volunteer Liz Jackson who died earlier this year after falling while horse riding.

The sun shone as those taking part rode from Kineton Grange Farm to RDA’s venue at Home Farm, Compton Verney, where they were treated to refreshments donated by Sainsburys, Wellesbourne, then continued on through Combrook and back to Kineton.

NFU Mutual sponsored the rosettes which were given to the returning riders by Simon, Liz’s husband.

The charities would like to thank the Stratford Ambulance Service, sponsored by Avonvale Veterinary Practice, the landowners, those who gave donations and services and all its marshalls for helping to make the event such a success which will enable them both to continue to offer their services to the local community.

About 11% of our rescue missions are to falls or similar incidents.
