Along with a 10 minute video, Kate Beim and Pam Farnsworth gave us some useful anecdotes and explanations for the riding for the disabled.
Watershed RDA in Coates
"Since 1993 Watershed RDA in Coates, has been delivering opportunities for therapy, achievement and enjoyment to children and adults with a wide range of disabilities. Our mission is to create an environment where our riders can have a tremendous amount of fun while learning new skills and achieving personal goals.
We run sessions for individuals and/or small groups of riders who ride either in our outdoor enclosed arena or in the surrounding countryside. Each rider is accompanied by members of our fantastic team. Our riders are aged 5 to 60 and come from areas such as Horsley, Chavenage, Leonard Stanley, Down Ampney, Stroud, Longlevens, Minchinhampton, Corston, Oaksey and Bourton-On-The-Water to name a few. The opportunity to interact with the horses gives them a real sense of achievement and happiness.
Trustees, volunteers and supporters are committed to building a great future so that our riders can have access to our wonderful services for many years to come.
We rely totally on our fund raising initiatives and are therefore always appreciative of any help and support you can provide."
