Riding Holiday 2019

Hope in the Valley RDA Group took four of its regular weekly disabled young riders to the Clywd Special Riding Centre in North Wales. This was a wonderful experience for each of the youngsters to be responsible for a pony for the 4 days of the stay.

Riders were in charge of bringing their pony in from the field first thing in the morning- even before having their own breakfast- grooming and tacking up, tack cleaning and even poo picking the paddock.

The young riders had a fabulous few days getting to know their ponies-Mack, Moo, Brian and steady Eddie- literally from head to tail, enjoyed riding twice a day, hacking out in a safe environment, picnicking and even riding to music during an indoor session.
