A HORSE GROOMER from Buntingford is raising money for a cattle drive across Wyoming.
Sue Gray, 23, hopes to raise £2,800 through a raffle in aid of the International League for the Protection of Horses (ILPH) which improves the lives of horses around the world.
The cattle drive will take 10 days and see Sue travel by horseback with a group of 15 other people from the UK.
She will ride across the Rocky Mountains and work alongside the ranch cowboys and cowgirls, rounding up 1,500 head of cattle before moving them on to their winter pasture.
She said: "I have always wanted to do it. It's the whole idea of becoming a cowgirl, so it's a dream come true."
Sue has already raised £1,800 through sponsorship from friends and family, but is selling raffle tickets for £1 to fund the remainder of the project.
