The Free Spirit project was delighted to join The Great Music Share Experience organised by Lichfield Cathedral on Thursday 12th October 2017.  Staffordshire Corps of Drums provided a powerful start to the evening and it was fantastic to see groups of young people come together to give such confident, inspirational performances in such a wonderful setting.  Many thanks to everyone who attended and raised funds for the Free Spirit Project

We are particularly proud to see so many young people engaging with the project and their hard work, dedication, and continued support at all the fundraising events is an inspiration to us all.

The fundraising events have included regular bag packs, an Evening of Celebration at Whittington DMS, a Side-Saddle Event and a recent performance of the Free Spirit song with songwriter Dominic Malin at Lichfield Rotary Club.  The Free Spirit Volunteers attended the Stafforshire County Show, joined the MFest 300 celebrations at Weston Park and Hammerwich Hall Garden Party.  These are just a selection of events that would not be possible without the support of a hardworking team of volunteers contributing their time to this very special project

A new role for Harry Halls’ Hi Vis has helped visually impaired riders. Please use the link to see the young volunteers working with students -

The project has visited inner city schools introducing young people to “Gypsy” the Shetland pony. The opportunity to meet a pony has never been accessible to many of the young people we meet.

The unique relationship between horse and human can increase confidence and self-esteem and help to improve well-being and social skills. The wonderful relationship between horses and people is a great motivating factor for many.

"This memorial is a wonderful idea and a long overdue acknowledgement of the selfless part horses have played throughout human conflict. I hope you will join me and support this initiative -it seems the least we can do in"
