The long ride

Across France to England. Map and details of the approximate route of the Caravan of Hope

Jakki Cunningham, President and founder of SLL, the Sète-Lorient-London charity, died on 22 October 2016 following several months of illness. Sadly missed by her family, friends and supporters. Her legacy lives on in all the RDA centres, the donated horses and the young people she helped and believed in.

A commemoration for friends, family and supporters of SLL at Wormwood Scrubs Pony Centre took place on 27 July 2017, with a display by the 6 Camargue horses donated to the Centre.

Closure…

The Camargue horses which were purchased by SLL for the postponed 2016 Caravan of Hope project, and which would have been ridden across France and England before being donated to centres practising equitherapy or riding for the disabled, have been rehomed and/or donated, in the spirit of the charity, but without the ride. Some of the Breton horses are still undergoing training in Brittany with Fred Kermel, and will eventually be donated, along with any remaining equipment, to appropriate centres.
