PEOPLE in Lincolnshire can enjoy a £5 horse riding lesson during October half-term by signing up to Quest for Gold.

Quest for Gold encourages people to try as many Olympic and Paralympic sports across the county between now and the 2012 Games next year.

By signing up, individuals can try 33 sports for free – that is one per week until June 2012!

Brook House Farm Riding Club near Louth is offering a free session for individuals signed up to the programme during October half-term.

And although participants on the programme have to be aged 16 plus to join Quest for Gold, parents with children are encouraged to sign up, and can take their children along to the lesson.

Hanya Pielichaty, 2012 Legacy Coordinator at Lincolnshire Sports Partnership, said: “Quest for Gold is an exciting opportunity for people to take part in sports they have perhaps never tried before such as equestrian and we’re delighted that Brook House Farm is offering this free taster session.

“I hope people in the area take up the opportunity to try an Olympic Sport; it’s a great chance for children, parents, grandparents and friends to get together during half-term.”

The session will take place in the afternoon on Friday 28th October 2011.

To attend the lesson for free and find out more information, visit and sign up for just £5.
