The RAC Saddle Club raised £731 in aid of Ukrainian Equestrian Federation Charity Foundation and #Willdoes on Sunday March 13.
Over 40 competitors gathered to compete in a charity dressage event at the equestrian centre in Bovington with entry fees and donations split 50/50 between both charities.
Children painted their ponies in the colours of the Ukrainian flag, with a number of local horse owners and businesses contributing to the success of the event.
Special thanks goes to local businesses Dorset Photo Event for their donation of free photo downloads for our riders and to Busy Birds for their donation and providing us with delicious food.
Yard manager of the RAC Saddle Club Steph Buchanan said: “We really wanted to do something to help and were overwhelmed by the response. It was great to see the kids rally together, as well as so many volunteers, Liz Humphreys, Katharine Green, Denise English, Claire Ferguson, Melody Bloomfield and Sacha Scott.
