CANCELLED - June off-road horse ride
June Off-road Horse Ride - CANCELLED
It is with regret that we have cancelled the June off-road horse ride at Farnley Estates, scheduled for Saturday, 27 June 2015.
There have been reports of outbreaks of strangles in nearby villages. As a result we've consulted with veterinary professionals and are following their advice to cancel the ride.
While we know that this is disappointing, the health and safety of our riders and their horses is always our top priority. Strangles is highly contagious and potentially fatal for horses, which is why we’ve taken the decision to cancel the ride and, hopefully, help to prevent this devastating disease from spreading.
"We know how much riders love our off-road hors rides, and we hope that they understand the reasons for our decision. We want to make sure that this outbreak is contained quickly and for this reason, we cannot risk a large gathering of horses," said Paul Sykes, Farnley Estates Director.
Thank you for your understandinf and we hope to see you at future rides.
