Around 50 horses and riders took part in a pleasure ride around Binchester, near Bishop Auckland, to enjoy the stunning countryside. The event raised £680.
Organised by the County Durham committee, the ride took supporters on a 10 mile route from Binchester Hall Farm along the River Wear and through Bellburn Wood by Auckland Castle.
Sally Conner, regional manager for the North East, said: “I’d like to thank the County Durham committee for putting this event together. Much of our funding comes from the hard work of our volunteers and supporters, who give up their time to organise events like these.”
