Dis­abled rid­ing group adds to its arena

Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS -

RID­ING for the Dis­abled Hills Group has added a splash of colour to its horse- rid­ing arena in Sawyers Val­ley.

Coach Wil­lie Warnock said along with new rain­bow poles, the group bought a por­ta­ble dres­sage arena with grants from the Shire of Mun­dar­ing and Ro­tary Club Mun­dar­ing.

The arena sets out bound­aries and marker poles to de­fine pat­terns for the dres­sage rider and horse to fol­low in com­pe­ti­tions.

“Our first use of the dres­sage arena was at the group’s re­cent cos­tume rid­ing party,” Ms Warnock said.

“Our rider Re­bekah Mil­lard was judged by Rio Par­a­lympian Sharon Jarvis.”

Ms Warnock said RDA Hills Group of­fers dres­sage train­ing in its rid­ing pro­gram, along­side hip­pother­apy and re­cre­ational rid­ing.
