Ever since my eldest brother was born with a disability 28 years ago, my mum has run a very successful and invaluable riding for the disabled group. For a long time, the charity she established has been equivalent to a full- time job, as she has over 70 riders a week and on top of that has all the horses to look after and administration to attend to. Her voluntary work extends beyond just providing rides for those with disabilities, as she also provides work placements for those with disabilities and provides both rest bite and care for them when necessary. Additionally,she has been involved in the local pony club and run's the residential camp every year. She received an MBE for all her work within the community in the NY and I feel this opportunity would be a very special moment that she thoroughly deserves, as she is also v passionate about sport!
