Smiles at Summerhill Care Home thanks to BTRC My My & Washbear

BTRC My My & Washbear visited the residents of Summerhill Care Home in Kendal on August 5th on what was a beautiful, sunny day.

This was the first time BTRC My My (11 year old, ran 10 times and trained by John Feane Racing) had been out on a visit and he was fantastic, so calm and quiet as he strolled around the garden stopping to meet each and every resident and putting huge smiles on their faces.

Some of the residents had their families visiting as well so it was great to chat to the families and learn more about the people we were meeting.

One resident said “I’ve had a great day, the horses are absolutely lovely, thank you so much.”

These visits are so important to the work of BTRC as they give our horses a purpose and they bring so much joy to the community. It is vital we continue to work together for the benefit of retired racehorses and the local community.

Summerhill Resident Liaison Officer Sean Moore said “Thanks again to the BTRC for visiting, the residents loved it and have been telling all their families.”
