A Wow saddle, Ariat boots and half a tonne of horse feed are some of the prizes on offer in a nationwide equestrian raffle launched in aid of charity Spinal Research’s Saddle Up campaign.

Tickets cost £10 for 10, and proceeds go towards research into spinal cord repair. The raffle will be drawn on 30 October.

More than 40,000 people in the UK are paralysed as a result of damage to the spinal cord, and around 800 more are added to this list every year. The majority of injuries occur among 18-35 year olds.

The first prize is a Wow saddle worth over £1,700. And other prizes include a personalised portrait of the winner’s horse by artist Kathy Lewis, five pairs of Ariat boots, half a tonne of Baileys horse feed and a Kan body protector.

Specialist equine fundraiser at Spinal Research Isabel Robinson said: “Everyone who buys a raffle ticket will be helping the work we fund into spinal cord repair whilst also gaining the opportunity to win one of the 13 amazing prizes. With everyone’s help we hope that we will find a cure for paralysis”.
