Robert Smith and his sponsor, Falcon Equine Feeds, were pleased to welcome Ruth Marjason-Stamp to the Royal International Horse Show at Hickstead and in doing so, helped to promote and raise funds for the charity Dreams Come True.
Show jumping enthusiast Ruth was diagnosed with a bone tumour in her leg in October 2006. Since then she has had to cope with many courses of chemotherapy and an operation which prevented her taking part in her real passion in life – her love of horse riding.
Thankfully, Ruth appears to be making a great recovery, and when she applied to the charity Dreams Come True, she was not only granted her wish for a set of show jumps, but also a day at Hickstead going behind the scenes with Robert Smith.
Ruth even got to present the prizes for the SKY Sports Speed Classic on Saturday.
The day was organised and supported by Falcon Equine Feeds, who are actively fundraising for the charity. Dreams Come True is a national charity which makes the dreams of terminally or seriously ill children become a reality. The only limit to a dream is a child’s imagination.
Falcon Equine Feeds is currently raising money – their target is £850 – for an 11 year old boy. Jamie has Downs Syndrome, Autism and severe learning difficulties and requires a special modified trike.
