Young rid­ers to shine

Mandurah Coastal Times - - NEWS -

YOUNG rid­ers with dis­abil­i­ties from through­out WA will con­verge on Fair­bridge for the Rid­ing for the Dis­abled As­so­ci­a­tion WA (RDAWA) 2017 State Games on Satur­day, Septem­ber 9.

The Games pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for RDAWA rid­ers with dis­abil­i­ties to com­pete in friendly mounted games com­pe­ti­tion and demon­strate their abil­i­ties, achieve­ments and skills.

RDAWA ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Kelly Mans­field said more than 1000 rid­ers of all ages with in­tel­lec­tual and phys­i­cal dis­abil­i­ties at­tended cen­tres around WA and the games was the one event where ev­ery­one came to­gether to show the im­prove­ments they had made, not only as a rider but in their daily lives.

Rid­ers par­tic­i­pate in a range of in­di­vid­ual games and the mounted fancy dress com­pe­ti­tion is a high­light of the day.

The event will be open to the gen­eral pub­lic for the first time, with face paint­ing, bal­loon twist­ing a track­less train, bis­cuit dec­o­rat­ing and a fam­ily trea­sure hunt.
