brooke-logoThe Riding Company have teamed up with horse charity The Brooke, to organise a sponsored ride in Egypt this November to help badly treated horses. In fact, it was in Egypt that The Brooke’s founder, Dorothy Brooke, started the charity in 1930. She was horrified to see hundreds of emaciated horses on its streets, so she set up a committee and bought 5,000 ex-cavalry horses.
And in 1934, Dorothy Brooke founded the ‘Old War Horse Memorial Hospital’ in Cairo, with the promise of free veterinary care for all the city’s working horses and donkeys…the Brooke Hospital for Animals was born.
We will be visiting some Brooke projects around Cairo to see first hand how the charity is helping the sick and poorly-treated horses. Everyone involved can enjoy a fun, but worthwhile holiday, with a great bunch of people, while they take part in the sponsored ride.
