A chance to see how impressively former racehorses are retrained at Moorcroft Racehorse Welfare Centre at Huntingrove Stud, Slinfold, near Horsham, West Sussex, is being offered at a special demonstration day on August 10.

Jenny and Maruska, physiotherapists from Bridgefield Physiotherapy, will be expanding on a programme back in February when they explained what happens to some bones and joints when a horse is working and what type of common ailments horses can suffer from during their normal working lives.

This time more horses will be shown and more working demonstrations will be given  and the musculature will be under focus.

Jenny and Maruska will give helpful advice on a horse’s antomy and on ways to help horses when riding them. An early date for you diary and an event not to be missed.

Also, the biggest fundraiser for the centre is the annual Plumpton Race Day. The date this year is on Monday October 21 and it is a fantastic day out- as well as a vital source of funding for the valuable work done by Mary Henley-Smith and her team at Moorcroft.
