Bransby Horses hosted the East Midlands baton exchange of The Great Horses For Health UK Relay between Georgia Kavulok from YouTube and TikTok channel, Lilpetchannel, and Natasha Rhodes from Bransby Horses’ Riding Barn Team on August 20th.
Natasha rode Diego who is currently undergoing ridden training in our Riding Barn and will be looking for a foster home following successful completion of his training. Accompanied by new Sponsorship Star, Womble and his best friend Rodney, Georgia received the baton from Natasha to successfully carry on the next leg of the relay which started in Yorkshire in May.
The relay has travelled all throughout Scotland, Ireland and Wales before reaching Lincolnshire, and aims to celebrate how much equines have supported owners during the COVID-19 pandemic whilst raising vital funds for seven equine charities who have been financially impacted over the last 12 months.
The baton exchange was followed by a Wellness Walk Bransby Horses to raise money for Horses4Health.co.uk and a Meet & Greet with Lilpetchannel, both received well by visitors. Georgia said, “It was great to be a part of the baton exchange and highlight the great work all seven charities do to promote equine rescue and welfare. I enjoyed meeting the charity’s supporters afterwards but I think Womble, Rodney, Diego and Toby enjoyed it most!”
The relay will continue southwards raising awareness throughout the East of England, ultimately finishing in the South West in early autumn. For more information on the relay and how to get involved, please visit Horses4Health.co.uk
