Moulton College Equine Team the ‘Moulton Marvellous Mares’ recently took part in the ‘Global ’s Make Some Noise’ charity event, ‘Run for Home’, at Edgbaston Cricket ground. The team comprised of Katie Macalister, Charlotte Osborne, Sally Foskett and Ami Darby.
Starting from Edgbaston Cricket ground they were driven by coach to a mystery location where they needed to follows clues to complete a treasure hunt task before returning back to the Cricket ground via a check point in Leamington Spa.
They had to make their own way home and were only permitted to take £1 with them! Throughout the challenge, the team donned horse costumes complete with full horse heads, tail and leg warmers resembling the feathers of a horse which attracted a lot of attention including many requests from members of the public for ‘selfies’.
They managed to hitch a lift to the check point in Leamington before arriving at the Cricket Ground in the back of a horse trailer which, taking the costumes into account, seems very appropriate. The team finished a very creditable 9th overall out of 125 teams and have raised £425 so far for the charity.
