Shetland Performance Display Team
We have just returned from Devon County Show where Livvy is very lucky to be able to race with the display team on Shetland ponies raising money for the Wallace and Gromit Grand Appeal in aid of Bristol Children’s Hospital.
The ponies and jockeys race laps over miniature hurdles and up the finishing straight to the winning post!
Spare time is spent on ‘meet and greet’ at the shows where the public can meet the ponies; a great opportunity for the jockeys to explain our aims and fund raise for the charity.
In 2019 the team presented a cheque of £4300 to the hospital, we feel it is important they see where the money raised goes and how it helps children less fortunate than themselves.
We are lucky to have many more shows in the diary this year including Frome Cheese Show and Gillingham and Shaftesbury show.
Come and say hello if you are there!
