Horse insurance: Prince Charles backs charity ride

Horse insurance policyholders have been told that a fundraiser from Tooting Bec received well-wishes from Prince Charles prior to riding from London to Edinburgh for charity.

Wandsworth Guardian reported that Colonel Ewan Cameron travelled between the English and Scottish capitals, which was a journey undertaken by Sir Robert Carey in 1603 on hearing of the death of Queen Elizabeth I.

Col Cameron, who is the chairman of Greater London Reserve Forces and Cadets Association, undertook the trip with Major Neil Cross and raised £27,000 for Combat Stress and The Light Dragoons Colonel's Appeal.

Prior to the event, Prince Charles wrote in a letter to the pair: "This is one of those rare challenges that with the advance of time and technology has not become any easier - and nor, I doubt has the potential problem of saddle sores."

Earlier this year, equine charity World Horse Welfare appealed for runners to participate on its behalf in the British 10km event in London in July.
