On 13th June 2020, I will line up as a jockey in the #rideoftheirlives at York Racecourse. I will be riding a real race horse, trained by a public trainer owned by a paying owner at one of the most prestigious racecourses in the country, if not the world. There will be in excess of 25,000 people there, that is daunting in itself! This race is in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, as is the whole raceday at York. The long-lasting partnership between York Racecourse and Macmillan Cancer Support remains the biggest single fundraising event for Macmillan Cancer Support and this year marks the 50th anniversary of such an alliance. They hope to make it big and raise £1,000,000!
To be part of this is inspiring, exciting, daunting and to be honest a little bit frightening! I am determined to do my best both in terms of raising money and riding the actual horse. I hope to raise £15,000 and have set up a Just Giving page HERE
Ryedale Mumbler has helped previous riders in this race, most notably Karl Avison of Cedarbarn Farm Shop & Miniature Railway last year. This year we have 3 big fundraisers for Macmillan Cancer Support all in conjunction with Ryedale Mumbler so I hoping you will support them….
