- Pony and trap journey to raise money for charity
- March 11, 2011 | 0 Responses
A 13-year-old is planning a long-distance pony and trap journey to help raise money for charity, news that might impress equine insurance customers.
Octavia Woodward is setting off on the trip in May, despite being a sufferer of Spinal Muscular Atrophy, reports the Somerset County Gazette.
She is set to start the 100-mile journey in Windsor and aims to finish up back at home in Charlton Musgrove.
This week, the brave youngster was given a Highly Commended certificate at the Pride of Somerset Youth Awards for the way she copes with her condition.
Others who are inspired to go on a long-distance journey on their horse or pony might consider taking out an equine insurance policy to cover any vet bill incurred during the trip.
Earlier this month, the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals announced that it was hoping the public would nominate children for its Young Person Animal Welfare Award.
