This week have have had to say goodbye to our Therapy Pony Bibi,
Our Chair Michelle Sutton,
I am very sorry to be the bearer of sad news, but today we had to say goodbye to our lovely therapy pony Bibi.
What a week we’ve had at MRT – our teams of Kiltwalkers hiked part of the John Muir Way for this year’s Virtual Kiltwalk Weekend, to finish their challenges at our Centre at West Fenton!
After weeks and weeks of training, including a staggering 1,046 miles of combined long Sunday training walks, our Mighty Striders and Big Strollers were delighted to finish, raising over £9,600!
There’s still time to donate here – online fundraising closes on Monday 21st September
The Team fundraising total currently stands at over £9,600 – thank you to every single person who has donated so far. The amazing thing about The Kiltwalk is that their funding partner, The Hunter Foundation, gives every fundraiser’s total an added 50% boost! This incredibly generous event is a lifesaver for so many Scottish charities in this difficult year, and we are so grateful to everyone for their support. Your donation is directly helping us secure the future of our service.
If you’ve enjoyed following our Kiltwalkers progress on our social media, why not join in next year and be part of Team MRT 2021!
Why not give yourself a treat and pick up a delicious picnic, filled with our legendary baking, this coming September Holiday Weekend?
Indulge yourself, share a treat with a friend, or have a family feast. And with 100% of the income from this one-off fundraiser going directly to support Muirfield Riding Therapy during the coronavirus pandemic you know you’re doing something good too.

The Kiltwalk has gone virtual for 2020, and we kicked off our Team MRT Virtual Kiltwalk Week in style on Monday 9th September, with our four Mighty Striders completing their 24 mile challenge! This weekend, even more Team MRT Kiltwalkers are joining in. In small, COVID-19 compliant teams, twelve Big Strollers are taking on the 15 mile challenge and are already smashing our fundraising goal!
On Saturday 12 September
Look out for our Volunteer Christine and husband Ken taking on their 15 mile Big Stroll, walking a circular route from Gullane, to Aberlady then back round the coast to North Berwick before heading home to Gullane again. Look out for them in their green Muirfield Riding Therapy t-shirts! Give them a wave if you spot them en route!
On Sunday 13 September
Although you can’t offer our Kiltwalkers encouragement in person due to COVID-19 restrictions, you can support them by sending a virtual wave on our social media, and by donating and helping secure the future of our service
