Sponsored Ride on Sunday, 2nd September.
Ideal weather attracted many riders to Old Hall Estate, Barham, for the IHS autumn ride. Riders all commented on the lovely ride and tracks which would not normally be accessible to them and we are very grateful for the hospitality of the landowners in allowing us to route the ride over their farmland. The ride was in aid of Street Forge Workshops, a small charity based in Thornham Magna, providing training and activities for adults with disabilities. At the moment sponsorship raised stands at £643. See our Show and Rides page for more details.
Thank you to everyone who completed our Spring Sponsored Ride on Sunday, 3rd June. You all helped raise over £600.00 for the EA Air Ambulance. Together with the proceeds raised earlier in the year we were able to donate a total of £1,347.00 to the EAAA. Well done everyone. See our Show and Rides page for details and images and a link to the Thank You letter received from the EAA.
Go to our Events and Show and Rides pages for more details of all events taking place later this year.
The Society was formed over forty years ago with the aim of raising funds for local charities from the proceeds of equestrian events. Visit our About Us page to find out how we started and what we have achieved so far.
Our spring show is held every year on Easter Monday at Trinity Park, Ipswich. Catering for all abilities, and being one of the first outdoor shows of the season, it's perfect for blowing away those winter cobwebs in a friendly atmosphere whilst enjoying the space and facilities of a county showground. This year's schedule and entry form will be available soon.
Later in the year we hold two very popular sponsored rides. The first ride is held late spring / early summer with the second being our autumn ride in September.
Take a look at the Events and Show and Rides pages to find out more. Details of our events can also be found on Horsedates, in the local press and tack shops.
If there is anything else you'd like to know, or if you would be interested in offering sponsorship (or volunteer some help) at any of the events, then please get in touch - we'd love to hear from you.
