The Cavalier Centre, in Much Wenlock, home of Perry Riding for the Disabled Association, is running the auction from December 2 to 9.

In total, the charity has 72 lots, all kindly donated by generous businesses and friends of the charity.

It is hoped the auction will raise funds to help the charity to continue to support people with a range of disabilities and needs from all over Shropshire and beyond.

Amongst the lots are lessons with some of the leading riders and equestrian trainers from Shropshire and the UK, including lessons with four-star event rider Michael Owen and five-star event rider Louise Harwood.

Also up for grabs for the horse lovers is the chance to win a day’s hunting for two with the Ludlow Hunt and a tour of Stallion AI Services where you will meet the double Olympic champion Showjumping legend Big Star.

Dog lovers are well catered for too with dog agility lessons, as well as pet portrait and photography sessions.

Food lovers can feast on a hand decorated Christmas cake, a huge supply of ice cream and a cheese hamper.

Adrenaline junkies can choose from a 4x4 off-roading experience or off-road quad biking.

But if something altogether more tranquil is needed there are lots to win yoga and Pilates classes, a facial or massage or a trip on horse drawn boat for four.

Jane Barker, trustee and auction organiser, said: “It is with huge thanks to Savina Barnes for the initial idea and to Stephanie Robinson for the setting up of this fabulous site – and to all the incredibly generous donors of items.

"We always say we can't do any of this without your support and I am hopeful you will all turn out to support us through the first week in December. I already have my eye on a couple of things!”
