The project was part of Connor’s Learning for Life programme and he got spectators and friends as well as riders at the Clifton horse show to sponsor rides and jumps. Connor’s donation will assist the Foundation to improve the life of animals by supporting research projects on cancer and infectious diseases that affect our beloved pets.
