Charity Horse and Flamenco Show spectacular event at Casa la Pedrera, Torremendo

HUNDREDS of euros were raised for the Elche Children’s Home following the Charity Horse and Flamenco Show spectacular event at Casa la Pedrera, Torremendo. “Monies raised will go towards numerous things – including sports equipment, school bags, and running shoes.

The Director will decide,” Annette English told me.

Annette, a fundraiser volunteer at the Elche Childrens Home, introduced me to three boys from the home: Jessie, Gerard and Justin. “We have never been to anything like this before,” said Jessie.

“We are overwhelmed by it all,” said Gerard. “There are 18 children in the Elche Childrens Home and we thank everybody for their support, especially Jenni and Derek Ray, owners of Casa La Pedrera,” said Annette.

The final summer show took place at the Grand Design House overlooking Lake Pedrera watched by an audience of 150 that was enthralled by the Jay Markwick’s Company of Dancers; Emma Tytherleigh and Juan Cortezare. Opening the show was the four female Flamenco dancers whose showcase was performed on a stage overlooking the picturesque setting of Lake Pedrera.

Jenni’s daughter’s Eden and Linzi performed on their horse Aero, who was back in the show ring for the first time in a year, after undergoing a growth operation. Courageous Emma Tytherleigh and her horse Romero thrilled the audience with acrobatic displays and daring stunts encapsulated with running through fire! Juan Cortezare was dressed in the traditional Spanish wear, highlighted when performing with a Garrocha, a pole used with the wild bulls, for bullfighting and herding cattle.

The long length of the pole saw Juan skilfully display an art form in itself. And pony Rocco was a show-stopper in what was his first outing entering the ring whilst ‘relieving’ himself. “He’s a little nervous!,” quipped Jennie Ray. “Thank you very much for supporting the Elche Childrens Home,” said Jenni.
