Equetech is staging its sixth annual “Canter for a Cure” sponsored ride on 8 May.

The 12-mile ride at Milton Keynes Eventing Centre is raising funds for Cancer and Biodetection Dogs. Riders are encouraged to wear costumes with as much pink as possible.

The organisers hope to double their usual entries to 600, with a target figure of £75,000.

“Prizes will be given to riders getting the most sponsorship and those wearing the best costumes,” said Equetech managing director Liz Hayman.
