My story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to my chosen charity, BHS Welfare.[/p][p]I will be travelling to Malaga, Spain on 30th May 2015, meeting up with the rest of the party,  and then heading north to the Las Alpujarras which are located on the southern slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.  The first day I will meet my Andalusian horse and the following 7 days I will be trekking across the mountains, riding for approximately 6 hours a day to cover 240km over the 7 day period.  I will be mostly camping out as well as the odd night in a farmhouse.  [/p][p]This riding challege is to raise funds to support the excellent work that the British Horse Society Welfare department do supporting the welfare of neglected horses as well as other related projects.[/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p][p]You can follow me on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/SaraSawdyRidingChallenge[/p]
