The Perfectly Pink Trek at Newtonmore Riding Centre was a huge success on Saturday 31st October.Ruaridh Ormiston (proprietor of NRC) would like to say thanks to everybody that supported it especially Strathspey Highland Ponies who brought 9 ponies with them and to all those who raised sponsorship. I think we had more than 20 Highland Ponies so they were the best represented breed.
We had 47 Riders Registered altogether and we raised over £1100.00 on the day for Breast Cancer Research. A very special thanks to Gill Macrae for having the idea, Rebecca Morris for helping Gill organise it and everybody else that made it such a success.
Thanks to everybody who helped and made it happen, it was great FUN - especially dressing up in PINK!!
Well, after today's saddleclub where the kids all PINKED their ponies and had a mini dressage show all in PINK judged by two judges from Skye, we are probably closer to £1300.00 for the total raised over the weekend and with the online donations it must now be £1400.00.
We would also like to thank Alivie Stables for their contribution from the Pink Ride that they ran on the same day.
Biggest problem now is removing PINK sparkly nail varnish from the ponies hooves ! ;-)
If anybody still wants to donate this "Just Giving" Webpage should still be open for another couple of weeks, remember to leave a fun message and your name. http://www.donatetobreastcancer.org/perfectlypinktrek
