500 Ride for Life at Speedgate
Just under 500 horses came together at Speedgate Farm in Kent on Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th June for the company’s 7th “Ride for Life” event. Ride for Life is an eight-mile sponsored horse ride in aid of Cancer Research UK. “Think Pink” is the theme of the weekend and as usual the riders’ efforts amazed organisers and spectators alike.
Ride for Life 2019 looks to be the most successful for Speedgate to date with a current total raised standing at over £61,000! Ride for Life has already raised over £205,000 in previous years and organisers are so pleased to bring it back with such enthusiasm after a four-year break.
“On behalf of Cancer Research UK we thank all of the riders for their efforts; it is a truly amazing total, said Speedgate Enterprises Ltd’s Nicola Preston. “We have so many people to thank for the weekend but a special mention goes to Court Lodge Farm Horse Riding for allowing us to use a section of their land, Virbac UK Equine for sponsoring the medals, Nettex Equine for supplying Electrolytes, all of our marshals for giving up their weekend and of course the riders for raising so much for such a worthy cause.”
