Lieutenant Governor Adam Wood visited Pennybridge Equestrian Centre to see pupils of the Riding for the Disabled Association enjoy a riding lesson.
It was an informal visit and he was very interested in all aspects of the group rides which take place,’ said RDA chairman Joan Waters, who is also one of the instructors.
Mr Wood was introduced to the committee members and to the volunteers who attend each week to ensure that the rides can take place.
He spoke to the riders and presented them with rosettes.
‘Everyone at Riding for the Disabled wishes to thank him for his interest and, if anyone has a few hours to spare once a week, we would appreciate your help,’ said Joan.
Anyone interested in helping at Riding for the Disabled should call Priscilla Mayall on 843539.
