As a busy RDA stables, we always have a number of vital projects on the go. Currently we are striving to raise funds for a mechanical horse ( horse riding simulator) for the use of disabled children and adults who ride with us.
Whilst many of the people who ride with us are able to ride a real horse with the support of riding support volunteers, some of them with more severe disabilities, need additional help and support . We believe the use of a horse simulator would offer a riding experience to even the most disabled participant, for whom sitting on a live horse would not be possible or practical. Its use offers a safe and controlled environment for the development of skill and confidence, and provides riders with a sense of achievement and the opportunity to participate in a sport that they enjoy.
You can help us raise funds for this project by voting for us on the Aviva Community Fund competition, which offers funding for important causes in your community. It’s open to everyone, even if you’re not an-Aviva customer. Registration is free, and it only takes a few minutes, just click on the image.
