Horse lovers swap four feet for two

Horse lovers Anna Alcock and Chloe Roberts will be swapping four feet for two as they race around Bristol in aid of retired racehorses.

Anna Alcock and Chloe Roberts, who are both 17 and come from Pewsey, will be running the Bristol Half Marathon on Sunday, September 11 in aid of Greatwood, the charity that cares for retired racehorses and children with special needs.

Anna told Marlborough News Online: “Many people clearly go racing for either the joy of watching horses or for the social occasion, but we've realised that hardly anyone knows what happens after racing and when the horses come out of training.

“Similarly some people are unaware of the amazing effect of horses on children with special needs.

“If you would like to sponsor us for the run, it would be very much appreciated by us and by Greatwood, who are very much in need of financial help at this time.”

The pair hope to raise £700 for the charity. To sponsor them, log on to
