The DRF are delighted to announce a new beneficiary of an Inspirational Award.
We’d like to introduce you to Xanthe Goodman, a young lady who is passionate about horses, their welfare, and the intriguing game of Polocrosse. For the uninitiated, Polocrosse is a team sport – a combination of polo and lacrosse. It is played outside, on a field, on horseback. Each rider uses a cane or fibreglass stick to which is attached a racquet head with a loose, thread net, in which the ball is carried.
Xanthe applied to the DRF for financial assistance with her training and kit as she was recently selected for the 2019 England Pony Club Polocrosse Team. Her referees said she was chosen for the team because she has a good attitude towards participating and contributing to teams, and that she supports and coaches other younger less able players at any opportunity.
