Auroa Primary School - Aylssa's RDA Recount

R.D.A Riding for discovery. on PhotoPeach

Every Wednesday Kirsty and I go to RDA horse riding in Hawera.  RDA is run by a group of volunteers who give up their own time to give many disabled children the opportunity to enjoy riding horses.  This enables disabled children to interact with other children just like them.   Riding gives joy to myself and other disabled children.

RDA provides the horses and graze them at their own homes and transport them every week to the  Hawera Show Grounds.   All farrier costs and vet bills are paid by the RDA association.

I really love to see my horse Chekeita each week.   I also like to meet up with my friends for a chat.   Getting involved in the games on horse back is so much fun.   Horses are great therapy and help me relax my muscle and at the same time have fun. This post was written by one of our Room One students, Alyssa about time that she spends each week involved in the RDA in Hawera. She has posted this on her individual students page, which is the first page from a Room One student to surpass 100 page views. You can check out her entire blog by clicking on the link here.
