We are just horse lovers, like you, who want to make a difference.
Here at 'On Horses for Horses' there is no office, no money and no 'hunners of staff' but plenty of passion for horses in general and this event in particular. The plan and most of the work, has come from my kitchen table in stolen minutes & sleepless nights. However, nothing would have worked, or will work in the future, without the help of other passionate enthusiasts.
My name is Loes Knopper and this is my boy Charlie. Nicknamed Chazbo. He is my 1st horse, a 12 year old, 14.2 hands coloured cob and very clever. He is also very cheeky and keeps me on my toes. After a very rocky start and a few 'near' nervous breakdowns we have a built up a really nice partnership now and I couldn't picture my life without him anymore.
I couldn't do it without:
I am Charlie Madeley and this is Spangle. A gypsy vanner who I bought at 6 months old and have shown him inhand both seasons, he was started longreining at about 2 years and put in a cart for the first time at the end of Summer. We've had ups and downs with his... hoof infection and having him gelded, but we're back on track for this year =D and he was backed to ride in August.
Where, in this wide world,
Here, where grace is laced with muscle,
There is nothing so powerful,
The worlds past has been borne on his back,
