March 24th, 2018 heralds the return of National Equestrian Safety Day, a safety awareness day aimed specifically at the equestrian community.
The day has been created by the Mark Davies Injured Riders Fund (www.mdirf.co.uk) a registered charity dedicated to helping those injured through riding, handling or working with horses. Now, for the second year running and tying in with the charity’s 30th anniversary, the charity are more keen than ever to promote their work and safety around horses as Rosemary Lang, Administrator and Fund Co-ordinator explains:
“As the clocks go forward, more riders return to the saddle and the competition season starts. This day is to remind equestrians to stay safe around horses at all times and also to raise awareness of our valuable work & the continuing need for equestrians to support us so that we can help you, should you ever need us.”
