You don't have to be an equestrian pro to take up horse riding. There are many opportunities for beginners, novices, and advanced riders. Here are some ideas to get your started:
Go for a pony trek across stunning countryside - it's perfect for riders of all abilities. Experienced instructors can take you out at your local riding centre. You never know, you might feel like having a little canter!
Why not turn this into a group challenge and get your friends to ride with you. Set up a JustGiving fundraising page for your event.
Pony club activities
There are all sorts of ways your pony club can raise money for people living with cancer. There are mounted games and fancy dress competitions. Deck your horse in tinsel for Christmas and spooky dress for Halloween. You could ask for a donation of £1 per competition entry.
Challenge yourself to a showjumping course. It's a fun and great way to build a bond with a horse. Sell tickets for your showjumping event to raise money.
Find an instructor, pick a dressage test, and some fabulous music. Then you're all set to put on a performance at your local riding school.
If your child is having a pony party for their birthday, why not fundraise for Macmillan at the same time. You could have a collection bucket at the party.
If horseback isn't your thing, you can learn carriage driving. Get your family and friends to sponsor you to learn the discipline. For an extra challenge you could do a route in an arena or the countryside.
