Don’t forget to pop along to the University of Glasgow Vet School’s 54th annual charity rodeo at Bearsden’s Garscube Estate this Saturday (April 12).
The fun family event, organised by students at the Glasgow University Veterinary School, will raise money for animal-related charities.
Last year it made over £15,000 for good causes and their chosen charities this year include The Blue Cross, World Horse Welfare, Hearing Dogs for the Deaf and some smaller ones which are close to their hearts such as The Veterinary Development Fund - The James Herriot Scholarship Fund, Students for Animals In Need, Hessilhead Wildlife Rescue and Inti Wara Yassi, which is a Bolivian organisation which defends animal rights.
The rodeo runs from 11am until 5pm with all the usual attractions including duck herding, falconry, sled dog demo, canine partners demo, homeless hounds parade, dog show, and new ones such as an animal corner with alpacas and ponies from World Horse Welfare and a horse rescue demonstration.
Tickets cost £7 for an adult, £3 concession and £15 for a family. The entrance to Garscube estate is on Maryhill Road, Bearsden.
