Weʼre raising £5,000 to take part in a challenge ride to raise money to support the work of the British Horse Society Welfare Support Team to help horses. My name is Andrew Stennett and my passion is horses. Horses make a very special contribution to the lives of many people all over the UK. Sadly not every horse has the opportunity these noble animals deserve . The British Horse Welfare department remit is to help care and education to improve the health and welfare of horses. I will be taking part in the BHS challenge ride in Rajasthan from Sept 23rd 2017 to 4th October 2017 in aim to raise £5,000 for their work. Can you help me with challenge?
