Riding for the Disabled Autumn Gala

This afternoon I was privileged to be asked to present rosettes at Avon Riding for the Disabled's annual Autumn Gala.

The centre is so much more than just a riding stable. It provides the opportunity for disabled children and adults to overcome their disability in some small way, and learn to ride. Riding is not only liberating and fun, but it also provides therapy - good muscle exercise and increases the sense of balance.

Here I am presenting prizes to the young participants of the "Wizard of Oz" opening show. It was humbling to present prizes to young people who face such extraordinary daily challenges . Well done to all involved. A really remarkable, and wonderful afternoon.
