Early in April over 80 riders set off for a charity cross country with over 60 fences through picturesque farmland outside Banbridge.

With the sun shining overhead and perfect conditions underfoot, a good day was had by all riders and spectators and more importantly the grand total of £2000 was raised for the 2015 chosen charity – Southern Area Hospice Services who provide invaluable support and care to people who are suffering from Cancer and other life limiting diseases.

Their aim is to provide the best quality of life for their patients and their families.

The organisers of the charity cross country ride would like to thank local farmers for the use of their land and The Iveagh Foxhounds for their support in running this annual event.
