HEALTHY living on horseback has been given a financial boost through a charitable program focused on giving people with disabilities a fair go.
The Western District Employment Access (WDEA) charitable trust has donated $3500 to the Riding Develops Abilities program, which has been running in the south-west for more than a decade.
The horse riding program is held at Dennington’s Highview Arena and the funding will help with food supplies for the horses and general upkeep.
WDEA community director Kim Williams said the program could only survive due to hard-working volunteers.
“One of WDEA’s main areas of focus is assisting people in the south-west with disabilities and this is a fantastic program that does just that,” Ms Williams said.
