A girl with cerebral palsy has completed a sponsored horse ride to raise money for an eight-year-old boy recovering from cancer.
Proud mum Tracy Samuel, of Rhosnesni, said her six-year-old daughter, Alexis, “absolutely loved” the one-kilometre sponsored ride, which has so far brought in £160 in donations.
The ride, which coincided with brave Dean Puplett’s eighth birthday, was completed at Clwyd Special Riding Centre in Llanfynydd.
Alexis, who is visually impaired, has hearing difficulties and cannot speak, has been riding for the last three years.
She has been going to the centre since she was two years old and originally went there for hippotherapy, a form of physical, occupational and speech therapy which uses the characteristic movements of a horse to provide carefully graded motor and sensory input.
