The Rotary Club of Church Wilne’s annual charity horse ride is thought to have raised about £3,500 for charity.

A total of 179 riders and horses enjoyed the course of bridleways, roads and farmland through countryside, including around Dale Abbey.

The full course was over nine miles long

The total raised for charity over the six years of the events now totals more than £20,000 for good causes.
