Be sure to read Matthews next instalment of his Eventing blog now live on the Horse & Hound website!!
I’m pleased to say that I’m now allowed to announce the big secret that iv been keeping under wraps since December! Iv been selected to take part in the Best Western Hotels & Macmillan Ride Of Their Lives at York Racecourse on Saturday 16th June 2018.
I am so excited about this once in a lifetime experience. More importantly it is a great opportunity to raise money for Macmillan who provide endless support to families and patients who’s lives are being affected by cancer. More and more people are diagnosed every year and awareness and support needs raising as much as possible.
I am looking forward to sharing my journey with you all, which I will also do through my Horse & Hound blog. Please visit my JustGiving link and donate, any contribution no matter how small can help to change lives. I have to lose nearly 6 stone for this race, which after having hormone treatment for cancer myself causing me to gain in weight is not an easy task. I have already lost 2 stone since December and I will achieve this and ride to the finish line for this great cause.
