Bringing Equestrians Together for Riders Minds Day

Riders Minds are inviting equestrians all over the world to come together on 9th August 2024, for Riders Minds Day, in a campaign to break barriers and show each other support.

On the 9th August mental health and well-being charity, Riders Minds is asking everyone to wear something purple, and to Ask. Care. Talk (A.C.T) in support of promoting positivity throughout equestrianism for the inaugural Riders Minds Day.

“It’s time to unite, it’s time to stop talking about one another and start talking to each other. Always be humble, always be understanding and always be kind. The brightest smiles can hide a thousand wounds and people can be fighting inner battles you know absolutely nothing about.

We’re all different and we weren’t born to be the same. On the 9th August, we’re asking all equestrians to come together from all walks of life and A.C.T on that day. Start a conversation on a yard, smile at someone you wouldn’t normally talk to, wear something purple, and for once let us all be united by the same passion. We all have the power to be that leg up that somebody might desperately need.”

In addition, Riders Minds is also looking for a team of fundraisers throughout the month of August to get involved with bringing Equestrians Together. More information can be found here. 

Riders Minds services are free, 100% confidential, and accessible 24 hours a day.

If you would like to talk to one of our trained team please call the helpline on 08000 882 073, or text 07480 488 103, or access the web chat which can be found on the purple button at the bottom of your screen.
