Beth Blogs: Why I love Riding for the Disabled

Beth Blogs: Why I love Riding for the Disabled

Hello Warriors of the World, I'm back!

 
Firstly I'd like to thank you all for your views and nice comments about THIS, my first blog/vlog last month. I was very surprised how many people watched my video. WOW!!
 
Today I am going to tell you about one of my favourite pastimes - horse riding. I go to Angus Riding for the Disabled at Inverarity, near Forfar. I have been going since the age of 5 so that means I've been going a long, long time!
 
Angus RDA are a fantastic group who provide an opportunity to people who may not normally get the chance to ride horses. They provide help to all ages and abilities and there is a team of helpers involved who give up their time to help people like me!
 
The big bosses are Eleanor and Joanne, who look after the horses 24/7 but there are also helpers who volunteer to guide the horses, run the kitchen, help mucking out and also to do the boring but essential admin stuff!
 
I love the horses and have ridden many over the years as I've grown bigger. My favourites have been Robbie & Hamish.

It takes a lot of money to look after the horses with feed, vet bills and upkeep of the centre. Lots of fund raising is needed and lots of parents/family/helpers have done events to raise a few pennies. They have done sponsored walks & cycles, cake bakes, coffee mornings, birthday donations, football matches & concerts and lots more.
 
Riding has been great for me and I am now allowed to help in the stables. My favourite job is scooping up the poop with a big shovel and wheelbarrow!
 
Oh!  And did I mention that I'm quite good at it and have won a few trophies and rosettes? ;)

Now I'm going to introduce you to some of my four-legged friends with this video.  I hope you enjoy it, Warriors!
 
Until next month it's...
 

Beth Blogs, over and out.

 

P.S. If you're not bored of me yet and you have another 34 seconds to spare then you can watch my Ice Bucket Challenge!  I hope you did it too and remembered to donate!!
