Two Bradford on Avon Riding for the Disabled instructors have raised more than £1,000 for the charity and Cancer research Uk after a 50-mile challenge through Wiltshire on Sunday.

Jo Rutherford and Kady Chatman teach disabled riders every week at the Group in Bradford and took on the challenge with Mrs Rutherford’s daughter Holly, 23.

Their version of a triathlon included a 30-mile cycle, a 10-mile horse ride, using two of the group’s horses, followed by a 10-mile run.

Mrs Rutherford, 52, said: “It was warm weather which made it tiring. The horse ride was the best part. Some of the group’s volunteers came to steward along the canal for the run and were a huge help handing out drinks.”
