Jumbo cheque

Barbara popped down to the Corslet Place Coop on Saturday to collect the jumbo cheque for the money raised over the last few months through their community fund.

Now all we need is a big wallet to take it to the bank in…

Thank you to everyone who joined the Coop and selected to support Ravelrig, this is a fantastic amount which will go a long way in helping to support the horses and riders.

Harris update

Thank you to everyone who has sent kind words for Harris.  Thank you also to the wonderful vets and students at Dick Vets who have treated and cared for him so well.

We visited him a few times and saw the improvement in him and his wound throughout the time he was in.  He is back at Ravelrig, much to everyone’s delight and is on stable rest for the next few weeks.

Community Support

There has always been a sense of community in this part of Edinburgh.  People communicating, supporting and helping each other to make our community better for everyone and it’s a lovely feeling to be part of it.

The Coop in Corslet Place, Currie has been a wonderful supporter of Ravelrig for the last year while we have been part of the Coop’s Community Local Fund.   Kerry, Scott, Craig and all their team have been out to see us a few times and even joined in our Summer Open Day.

Being one of the three local charities the store has supported has been an honour, but has unfortunately come to an end.  We will apply for the next round but what we have achieved this time is fantastic and it will really make a difference and allow us to develop and support our volunteer coaches.

Some of the Saturday volunteers will be heading to Corslet Place Coop on Saturday 24th November to collect our final payment cheque from the store’s team so we are really excited about that.  Pop along about 3pm if you want to join in the fun.

 

 

Update

We have had a run of bad luck with the horses recently, with Oreo and Teemo both being lame and Harris being badly injured.

Oreo has received the all clear from the vet, which we are really happy about and he is back out with his pals growing a beautiful winter coat.  Harris continues his stable rest with a regular lead rope walk around to keep him from getting too stiff.  He had his staples removed from his wound which is healing well.  However, Teemo is still lame and we are speaking to the vets about the best course of treatment for him.

Thank you to the riders and their families for understanding and being so patient as we manage the situation.

Thank you!

Graham Wright, one of our supporters who lives in Wales completed the Half Marathon in Vale and has raised nearly £300 for Ravelrig, which is fantastic.

Here’s a couple of photos that Graham sent over.  He said it was a great route going through muddy fields, rivers and along cliff tops, so hopefully a hot bath was waiting for him.

So from everyone at Ravelrig, including the eight ponies, THANK YOU GRAHAM!!!!!!
