BHS Scotland Chairman, Loraine Young, said: “This is going to be great day offering many rewards to those who take part. The routes are exquisite and offer rewarding riding and great views, there with be prizes galore with rosettes and goody bags to all finishers and, of course, the warm feeling for participants of raising money to support the BHS which does so much for Scotland’s horses.”
The event is set for June 10 and offers routes of either 14, seven or two miles long. Each route will take in the splendour of Bowhill’s drive and the ancient and historic Minch Moor. The rides will pass close to the Cheese Well where an offering of cheese allows travellers to pass unmolested thanks to the protection of the fairies!
Bowhill House will be open for the day, and their adventure playground will be open too. The house features walks and fishing to keep the rest of the family happy.
Each penny raised on June 4 will be used to support the work of the charity in Scotland as it pursues its access, safety, welfare and training aims to improve the lives of Scotland’s horses.
