CHarity New Year Trek 2024

Maggies Dundee Logo.jpg

They say the sun shines on the righteous, well Rowanlea must be righteous. The annual Charity New Year Trek on 2nd January had blue skies and sunshine all  the way through. The weather on either side of the trek was rain, and overcast but the 25 horses and riders enjoyed a magnificaent rideout with the temperature catching out some of the riders who had over dressed for the weather, however better hot than cold. The weather window could not hasve been better. 

After everyone retrurned safelya and the horses seen to there were soups and rolls, mince and tatties, sultana and banana cake, as well as a special New Year rosette, not edible, for all participants and donors. All the food was home made by some of the parents ands supporters, so a huge thanks to them for all their work before and after the trek.

Following on from the Summer charity fund raisng event for Maggie's Centre in Dundee, the trek this year was for the same worthwhile charity. This year £150 was raised from those participating with all the food and rosettes being gifted free by the 'caterers' and Rowanlea Riding School.

Well done and thank you to everyone who made this possible and came out and enjoyed the day but also for contributing to this worthwhile charity. The next New Year Trek in January 2025 will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the extablishment of Rowanlea Riding School in 1965 by David Conchie Snr.
