Clwyd Special Riding Centre situated in Llanfynydd
near Wrexham in North Wales is a registered charity run by a group of volunteers.
Every week it welcomes over 200 people of all ages with special needs who benefit from the pleasure and stimulation of riding,
carriage-driving and equestrian vaulting.
This unique Centre also provides residential riding holidays for groups of people with special needs from all over the UK and abroad.
RDA (Riding for the Disabled Association) member groups from all over the country
and abroad visit the Centre for residential riding holidays.
Riders look after their own ponies—they may have been looked after all their lives — now they have to look after someone else.
Cleopatra, who herself walks with two artificial knees, is attempting to
raise money for the Clywd Special Riding Centre by walking the costal route of the Isle of Man.
The walk will start from the Douglas harbour on the Isle of Man on Tuesday
the 3rd September at 10 am and will end back in Douglas on the 15th September.
The route will closely follow the coast of the island and will be done in a clockwise direction.

All donations are being made through the Virgin Money Giving website so if you would like to support Cleopatra's efforts,

In September 2008, Cleopatra walked the 600 Kilometers from Athens to Thessaloniki in her New Balance running shoes.
With the training that Cleopatra did, she had covered almost 3,000 Kilometers by the time she reached Thessaloniki. Not once did she experience any discomfort with her shoes.
Thank you New balance.
