ORGANISERS REPORT


The 22nd February was Northumberland and Tyneside’s Charity event raising money for Cancer Research. The event was held at Whitehouse Farm Morpeth with thanks to the Slater family and Jean and Janet at The Black Horse Shop. 


Eleven brave endurance riders from Northumberland, Durham and Scotland battled with the wind to complete the 2 mile orienteering course in good time testing their map reading skills and fitness. Sophie and Val Brown completed the route correctly in the fastest time and won the Dairy Milk Tray. 


The group took turns to ride on Saracen, a full size riding simulator that assess through pressure centres the riders centre of gravity and riding symmetry. Everyone took away some useful information that they could implement at home during their own training. 


Light refreshments were provided by the Black Horse Shop and Marnie Merrilees sports psychologist from peak performance gave an excellent presentation describing relaxation techniques, focused training and many more helpful tips that the group found very useful. 


Raffle prices were kindly donated by The Black Horse shop and raised £23. An enjoyable and sociable afternoon was had by all and raised £78 in total for Cancer Research. 


Thank you to all that attended, Whitehouse Farm, The Black Horse Shop, Marnie Merrilees and Paul Axcell for his help on the day.
