Taking place on Sunday, 6 October 2019 and held in the grounds of Sandringham Estate, the Sandringham Charity Horse Ride will see riders from around the UK gather in Norfolk to take part in five, eight- and 10-mile rides whilst raising money for charity.     

Created and organised by Sandringham Estate’s pensions and welfare officer, Anne Holt, the charity ride has raised a total of £86k for various charities since its first year in 2002.

This year the ride will support bereaved Armed Forces children’s charity Scotty’s Little Soldiers. 

Founded by war widow Nikki Scott in 2010, Scotty’s Little Soldiers supports children across the UK who have lost a parent while serving in the British Armed Forces.

The charity was set up in memory of Nikki’s husband and father to her two children, Corporal Lee Scott, after he was killed in Afghanistan in 2009. 

The Sandringham Charity Horse Ride happens twice per year and invites riders of all ages and experience level to take part.

Riders must bring their own horse and events regularly see between 200-250 riders attend with the cause alternating each time.

Organiser Anne Holt, said: “We’re so excited to do this for Scotty’s Little Soldiers this year and help children who have lost a parent in the British Armed Forces.

“We pride ourselves on making the horse ride a very friendly and relaxed day for riders of all ages and experience level, and we hope to see many new faces as well as the regular riders who turn up for us each and every year.”
