‘National Horse Protection Day’ 1st March

For a short CST activity on ‘National Horse Protection Day’, ask clients to list some famous fictional horses and riders, e.g. ‘Silver’/‘The Lone Ranger’, ‘Black Bess’/‘Dick Turpin’ & ‘Tornado’/‘Zorro’. And real life ones, e.g. Princess Anne, Bob Champion, Lester Piggott & ‘Red Rum’, ‘Seabiscuit’ & ‘Secretariat’. Have some horse pictures form the internet to colour in, or try drawing horses free hand. Tell stories about pony trekking and winning bets on ‘The Grand National’.
