An event near Saintfield today will raise money for a young jockey who suffered a serious spinal injury in March.
Jonjo Bright was paralysed from the neck down while racing at Tyrella Point to Point on March 2.
The sponsored hack at Lessans Riding Stables will be held this afternoon to generate funds for the Jonjo Bright Trust.
The organisers, Niall and Philippa Auret, say: “Everyone is welcome and horses are available for hire from Lessans Riding Stables. There is a minimum sponsorship of £20 per person.”
The ride will be followed by an indoor barbecue.
Lessans Riding Stables is a BHS-1pproved school three miles from Carryduff on the Saintfield Road.
