Money raised by cyclists taking part in Wooden Spoon Eastern Counties' Club Together ride is helping to put children in the saddle of a different kind.
Moss, a 12-year-old Shire Clydesdale cross horse, has been donated to Pakefield Riding School near Lowestoft.
The riding for the disabled centre holds up to 80 sessions a week for riders with a disability and the new recruit will help share the load of his stablemates.
Tess Hardy, owner of Pakefield Riding School said: 'We needed a big heavy horse as we have riders of all weights and sizes and Moss is perfect – a real softie.'
Chairman of Wooden Spoon Eastern Counties saidSeamus Farrelly said: 'We also managed to harness support from the Great Yarmouth Haven Rotary Club, which is a relationship we hope will help us continue to support Moss and the riding school.'
