A four day charity pony hack, which will take three riders 100 miles around the Lindsey Trail, will begin in the Louth area in a fortnight.

Fourteen-year-old Dani Kasem and her horse Dora will be joining her riding instructor Gilly Pope and friend Rachel Barker on the hack, which will take the trio from Haugham, just outside Louth, around the trail which will take them towards Horncastle, Wragby, Market Rasen, Tealby and Caistor before looping back round 
towards Louth.

The challenge will begin on the morning of April 7, and will then take them four days to complete as they will 
camp out en-route.

The group will be raising money for the equine welfare charity Bransby Horses, based near Lincoln, and also for 
the Injured Jockeys Fund.

Dani has already raised more than £100 towards the Bransby Horses through her fundraising page which can be found at www.justgiving.com/dani-kasem.

Meanwhile, Rachel’s fundraising page can be found at www.justgiving.com/Rachel-Barker16.

The challenge has been sponsored by a number of businesses including 
Louth tack shop Buckets, Lancaster Feed, Friends of Stourton, and more.
