As well as Brandy all the children at the Riding for the Disabled were a priority in my life. There’s been a little reshuffling in that the RDA centre is no more. At the moment there’s still a bunch of parents left organizing rides for their kids every now and then, but, despite them continuing to carry the same name, the centre is no longer affiliated with Riding for the Disabled Australia.

As a registered coach with Riding for the Disabled Australia I decided that it is a good idea to stick with national protocols, policies and procedures when working with children, people with disabilities and horses and as such chose not to be associated with the the local centre any longer.

It has caused me a lot of heartache because I love all the riders and cherished the time we spent horsing around but when dealing with horses and children, it’s safety first.
