Horse Parish Walk to take place this Sunday

Wed, 12 Jun 2013


A group of horse riders will attempt the Parish Walk this weekend – on horseback.

The challenge was first attempted in 1913 by 62-year-old John Young who rode the whole course on one horse in 23 hours.

On Sunday the route will be split into stages of 10 miles with groups tackling a section before passing on the baton. 

The event starts at 5.30am to try and limit inconvenience to road users.

Vikki Fleming from the British Horse Society Committee says there is an important message behind it:
