I am over the moon! I volunteered at my local Riding for the Disabled for 3 years before I came to uni, and I had the time of my life there. It is a fantastic experience, and it touched my heart in so many ways. Words cannot explain how much it melts your heart to see a child smile when they accomplish something you and them have been working towards for weeks, or the laugh when they experience their first trot. It is first hand evidence of just how important animals can be with helping people who are ill.
I was just keeping up to date with the local news when I came across this article, and I can't stop smiling - if anybody deserves it, it's Peggy. She founded the association over 25 years ago and has dedicated her life to it.

I can't wait to get back there when I move back home :)
