Church Wilne 9th Annual Horse Ride
Once again the weather was kind to us, in fact with the lack of recent rain the fields were quite hard under hoof but the horses appeared to have no problems. As usual the local farmers deserve a big thank you for letting us form a ride through an area not usually available to the public.
In all 222 horses rode the course of which 64 entered on the day and we were pleased to have 72 marshals which contributed to the smooth running of the event. £148 was collected in buckets at the car park and £130 came from sales at the Beer tent.
All proceeds, £8,000 in total, will go to the Children’s and Derbyshire Air Ambulance split 50/50.
