Estate agency Butcher Residential has agreed to sponsor Penistone and District Riding Club.
The riding club, which doesn’t have a regular base and meets at equestrian sites across the wider Penistone area, will use the sponsorship to fund additional competitions and support the social aspect of the club which was founded in 1977.
Anne Butcher, a director at Butcher Residential which has offices in Barnsley, Penistone and Denby Dale, said: “This club has been providing riding opportunities for all ages and abilities for almost 40 years. It’s a very inclusive club and does some excellent work in the community raising funds for charity.”
Pat Haisman, a committee member of Penistone and District Riding Club, said: “It’s very generous of Butcher Residential to support the club in 2016. We are hoping to compete in events across Yorkshire this year and the funding will be particularly useful in helping us grow the club.
“As well as competitive events we’ve also got some fun events planned including a nervous rider day, saddle fitting demonstrations and a flower-themed charity show. We run an annual weekly ‘camp’ with tuition and a mini show day and had more than 135 members from across the area last year.”
The club welcomes new members and membership starts at £18 per year. For more information visit www.penistoneridingclub.org.uk
