Ride to the hills

FORMER racehorse trainer Rhona Elliot hosts the last “walk, run or ride” fundraiser to be held at The Yett next month.

Horse riders, runners and hikers have the chance to cover 10 miles following flags (or a shorter route for lead-rein ponies) in the Cheviot Hills south of Hownam to raise money for the MS Borders branch and the British Horse Society on Sunday, September 16.

Runners will start at 10am, paying £10 if they sign up beforehand or £12 on the day, while walkers and riders will pay £15 in advance or £20 on the day.

The entry fee includes a hog roast and refreshments afterwards

Anyone wanting to take part should contact Karen Wardrop at karenwardrop@btinternet.com or on 07813 859365.
