A HALLOWEEN ride in memory of a horse breeder who died of cancer has been held to raise funds for the Beating Bowel Cancer Charity.
The Hamsterley Riding Association organised the horse ride on Sunday in memory of Andrew Moody who died in 2000 after a two year battle with cancer.
The 23-year-old grew up on a farm and loved horses. He ran a business from a farm at Escomb, near to Bishop Auckland, County Durham.
He bred and showed Appaloosa horses and he exported the first Appaloosas to Norway in 1996.
The Hamsterley Riding Association has held an annual Halloween ride in Mr Moody’s memory for 12-years.
The event saw riders head through the forest and nearby moorland with a ten-mile or two-mile course on offer.
Riders were encouraged to wear fancy dress and there was a competition for the best costume and the best lantern.
