The High Sheriff of Bucks has visited a Long Crendon horse riding and learning facility as part of an eight-day horseback tour of the county.

Carolyn Cumming is undertaking a recreation of activist William Cobbett’s rural rides through Bucks in the 1820s.

On September 19, the fourth day of her canter, the High Sheriff stopped off at Horsewyse, run by Neil and Karen Smith with equine facilitated learning and riding opportunities.

Mrs Cumming will visit many charities en route, many of them funded to some degree by freemasons.

The High Sheriff is appointed to the ceremonial post for a year. In theory, she is Her Majesty The Queen’s legal enforcer in the county. In practice, Mrs Cumming works to maintain the spirituality and morale of voluntary and statutory groups, particularly those associated with the judiciary.

The High Sheriff’s journey, which she will take on a series of horses, began in Olney on September 16 and ends at the Lady Ryder Memorial Garden in St Katherine’s Hospice, Henley.
