Riding for Disabled Volunteer

  • VO68992


Description

No experience of horses necessary as there are so many things that volunteers can do where they don’t need to be in charge of a horse/pony and all training can be provided. Volunteer opportunities will be allocated depending on preferences of the volunteer. This RDA group operate out of the equestrian centre at Burgie every Monday morning from 9.30am – 12.30am during term time, and provide riding lessons to 32 children with varying levels of disability ( 4 lessons with 8 ponies in each). The children come by minibus from many of the local primary and secondary schools. They are the ONLY RDA group to not charge anything to the riders and they receive no central funding so everything has to be fundraised. To operate safely they need many volunteers as they often need 3 volunteers/pony depending on the disability.
