A HORSE-loving teen has raised hundreds of pounds to help ex-racehorses.

Elise Purdy, 15, of Garths End, Pocklington, completed the Jane Tomlinson York 10K last month to raise funds for an organisation called New Beginnings, based in Hanging Grimston, which provides a safe and supportive environment for ex-racehorses to be rehabilitated and re-homed after they have retired from racing.
