British paralympic riders raise funds for trip to Beijing

  • Paradressage riders Lee Pearson and Matt Frost will be taking part in a demonstration evening at Bromyard Equestrian Centre in Herefordshire on 6 June to raise money for the Paralympics.

    The pair will be riding both young and advanced horses, explaining the differences between training for both able bodied and disabled riding as well as taking part in a dressage to music routine.

    Debbie Jones from Bromyard Equestrian Centre said: “I was speaking to Jane Goldsmith, the paralympic team selector and we decided to hold an event to raise money to send the riders to Beijing.

    “Lee Pearson and Matt Frost are great characters — it should be a laugh a minute. We are hoping up to 500 people will come along.”

    Bromyard was also recent granted 2012 pre-camp training main guide status — meaning that during the 2012 London Olympics visiting teams will be able to use the facility for training.

    Debbie added: “It’s great to have main guide status and look forward to welcoming visiting athletes. We have already held two paralympic qualifiers here and have been told we are very user-friendly.”

    Tickets cost £10, concessions and children £5.
