New Year charity Trek 2022

January 2nd 2022 saw the New Year4 Charity Trek taking place again after the cancellation of last year due to the pandemic restrictions. Some 37 horses and riders enjoyed great weatherto mark the start of the year, a tradition which began with Mr Conchie Snr. in 1965.

In recent years the trek has been undertaken as a charity event and this year was no exception. All riders made a donation which is going to the local Carnoustie Food Bank to help those in difficulties at this time of year. It was quite a spectacle to see the line of horses and riders enjoying themselves in the sunshine and possibly one of the warmest in memory. 

Hot soup and rolls awaited the riders after tending to their mounts which was a most welcome end to the day. The soup and rolls were sponsored by Rowanlea as was the comemorative rosettes which were goiven out to the participants.

A big thanks to all those who rode in the trek and also to those who helped behind the scenes to organise the road crossings and the soup, rolls and rosettes.


Blast from the Past

Here are some images from previous New Year Treks. Can you spot any familiar faces or horses? These were taken at the Milton Hotel in Monifieth. Guess the year from the young David Conchie.
