ARCHIE AND DAPPER (pictured) enjoyed a special treat at the beginning of the month, a carrot cake to celebrate the universal date for horses’ birthdays … on August 1.
The two horses are at RDA(NSW) Tall Timbers Centre at Box Hill. Every year the horses’ birthday is celebrated with fundraisers to support the Riding for the Disabled centre.
Staff coach, Nicole King said: “The horses at Tall Timbers are always cared for with feed, hay, rugs on a daily basis and have regular supplements, herbs, massages, hoof trimming and dentist treatments to keep them happy and healthy.“
In the past 12 months Tall Timbers has delivered 2500 hours of riding programs to 157 participants.
There is always a warm welcome for volunteers. Tall Timbers has another fundraiser on September 21, a Trivia Night at the Vineyard Hotel.
