The Team

The Great Horses for Health Relay 2021 is being organised by a team of volunteers across the UK, led by our Founder, Sophie Gifford and supported by our website designer, Caroline Thompson.

HorseWorld Trust is the lead Charity and under the guidance of CEO, Petra Ingram, is providing all the administration including the “Together With Horses” registration site, fulfilment of your registration packs and coordination of all the PR activities, including social media.

In addition to HorseWorld, we are supporting a number of charities with sites across the UK, who are all helping us to promote the event and will receive a share of the fundraised income:

• Redwings
• Hope Pastures
• HorseBack UK
• North Wales Horse Watch
• Bransby Horses



We are also delighted to tell you a share of the fundraised income will be used to create a new Horses 4 Health “Families Fund” to help improve the mental health and well-being of disadvantaged families through interaction with horses. This is an exciting new initiative that will be developed by HorseWorld as a pilot, and when fully evaluated by an external assessor, we hope to roll out across the UK.

We are grateful to everyone who is participating in this innovative event, you are all part of our team. A special thanks go to our Sponsors and Suppliers, who are joining us to help raise awareness of the positive impact horses have on the lives of people, never more so than during the Covid pandemic of the past year – thank you.
