COUNTRY roads will be lined with supporters when a little girl embarks on a sponsored trek on her pony.

Jenna Martin is only two-and-a-half years old but she has been spurred on by her family to ride for half- a-mile near Woodbridge.

She will be on her black Shetland pony Danny Boy for the sponsored event on Sunday and she will lead her pony on a route through Campsea Ashe.

The pair will make an eye-catching sight with Jenna in a reflective top with flashing lights and Danny Boy will be decked out in pink.

Already nearly £140 has been raised in support of the ride to raise money for Easton pre-school group which Jenna attends three times a week.

Jenna adores her pony and comes to see him at his stables daily. Her grandmother, Jo Martin, said Jenna would not be undeterred by the threat of Arctic weather sweeping in this weather.

“She will go out on him in all weathers and she will have a woolly coat on. The pony is 110% on the road and he will be fine. It will be good fun and we hope that some people will line the route.

“She does enjoy riding and the school has done so much good for her which is why she is doing this,” she said.

Jackie Wall, one of the pre-school group leaders, said: “We are absolutely over the moon about this event and, if the family do not ask for the money to be spent on anything specific, then it will go on equipment and things like that.”

The pre-school is having an Open Day on December 5 from 10am to 11.30am in Easton Village Hall.
