Pinetrees’ 20th Birthday Party

HOW TIME flies! Pinetrees Riding Centre in Almancil will be celebrating its 20th birthday by holding a party on Sunday July 24 at 5pm and all are welcome.

Due to the kind support by a new sponsor, a popular event is to be held, which incorporates both horses and dogs. In “Horse and Hound”, the clock starts ticking when the dog and handler attempt a course of small hurdles, tunnel, slalom, and over straw bales, followed by the horse and rider, who complete an obstacle course including some jumps (choice of heights). The best teams will receive prizes from the sponsor.

During the party, refreshments will be available and there will also be a raffle organised by helpers from Riding for the Disabled Algarve (RDA). Proceeds from this, plus 50 per cent of the proceeds from horse and hound, will go towards funds to help Riding for the Disabled in the Algarve who provide free riding therapy for disabled youngsters.
