An event in Wilsden in aid of the Equine Grass Sickness Fund raised almost £3,500.

Alex Ferris organised the fundraiser following the death of one of her horses from the condition. The event at Wilsden Equestrian Centre, near Ling Bob, included stalls, live music, showjumping, horse physiotherapy demonstrations and dressage.

There was also an auction featuring 75 prizes, including a signed Manchester United shirt, a signed Bradford City football, the use of a Mercedes car for a weekend and a Katie Price-signed hoodie.

Mrs Ferris said: “I was hoping to raise £2,000, but managed to raise £3,422.”

Equine grass sickness comes from eating grass which paralyses the gut. It rapidly becomes fatal.
