Paralympian lends support to horse charity

Posted on | 0 Responses

Josie Pearson MBE, who won gold in the discus at the 2012 Paralympic Games, has helped a horse charity raise £7,000.

She was on hand to greet people at the Welfare of Horses and Ponies open day in her new capacity as ambassador for the organisation.

The highlight for many of the 800 visitors to St Maugans Farm on Sunday (December 2nd) was meeting the ponies that are cared for at the location, reports the Monmouthshire Beacon.

A number of festive stalls selling gifts and refreshments also helped to boost the amount of money raised.

Jenny MacGregor MBE, chairwoman of the charity, told the news provider: "The majority of the money goes on feed for the winter. We are full up at the farm and we have three mountains with horses that we are taking hay up to. If anyone has any second grade hay for those animals, please get in touch."

Pearson grew up around horses and dreamed of being an Olympic rider until a car accident at the age of 17 put an end to such hopes.

Breaking her neck changed everything and she became a Paralympian instead.
