Bridgnorth-based racehorse trainer, Alastair Ralph, recently welcomed the team from Midlands Air Ambulance Charity and guests to his expanding yard in the stunning Shropshire hills.
Guests visited the national hunt and flat horses training facility in the heart of Shropshire’s scenic countryside. They were given a tour by Alastair Ralph and revered jumps jockey, Nick Scholfield, which included the stables, ménage and the gallops, before networking over brunch.
Pam Hodgetts, corporate partnerships manager for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, said: “We appreciate the support of the local equestrian community as sadly, on average one horse rider each week requires the enhanced critical care provided by our crews on-board our air ambulances.
“It was a delight to invite our guests along to Alastair Ralph Racing and provide a unique race day experience for our network of corporate supporters and charity friends.”
Nick Scholfield, top UK jumps and national hunt jockey, added: “It was my pleasure to host the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity team and their guests at Alastair Ralph Racing. It was great to give back to a lifesaving team that airlift several fellow jockey colleagues, giving them the best possible chance of survival.”
Midlands Air Ambulance Charity attends an average of 12 lifesaving missions every day across Shropshire and the wider Midlands region.
