The Stockeld Park group, which normally holds a sponsored ride the weekend after Bramham Horse Trials, had to cancel it this year due to the Covid 19 restrictions.

Organisers have now been given the go ahead to re-organise the ride on Saturday, 3 October.

This popular event will be limited to 100 riders so that everyone can set off at allotted times.

They will be able to enjoy a ten-mile ride through the park at a cost of £25.

This will help the group continue its work helping children with learning and physical disabilities from four local schools.

The weekly sessions had to be put on hold but it is hoped that these may, too, re-start soon at the group's new base at the Harrogate Riding Centre.

Full details and entry forms are available under the Events section at www.stockeldparkrda.co.uk
