Forllowing the success of last year’s Canter For A Cure event, Medical Detection Dogs has announced an additional charity ride this year – at a highly prestigious venue.

Last summer’s sponsored 12-mile ride at MK Eventing Centre raised more than £32,000 to support the charity’s cancer detection dog team and its work in the early detection of cancer.

This year’s Canter For A Cure takes place at MK Eventing Centre on Sunday, June 19.

The course covers 12 miles of scenic countryside ending with optional jumps ranging from 1ft to 4ft plus purpose-built water jumps. A shorter nine-mile route is available.

This year, Medical Detection Dogs are also offering riders the chance to take part in an additional Canter for a Cure in the prestigious environment of the Burghley Estate, in Stamford – home to the famous Burghley Horse Trials.

Canter For A Cure at Burghley takes place on Sunday, July 17.

The six-mile ride will start from the Queen Elizabeth Avenue archway, north of Burghley House.

Riders will go through both the public and private areas of the estate including scenic wooded tracks, open countryside and, on occasion, ride parallel to the Burghley Horse Trials Course.

Places are very limited. To register, see www.medicaldetectiondogs.org.uk/canter­for­a­cure­burghley/
