Lions donate new horse to Riding for the Disabled

The Goulburn Riding for the Disabled (RDA) has a new horse courtesy of the Goulburn City Lions Club. 

A large group were in attendance for the cheque presentation recently. 

Comprising Lion’s president Bill Starr and secretary Rosemary Chapman, as well as Bill and Helen Smith, Robert and Marie Pedlow, Lorrain Riley and Prue Rickard presented a cheque to Goulburn Riding for the Disabled for $2500 on July 31.

President of Goulburn RDA Kerry Guymer had asked the Lions Club for help in buying a suitable therapy horse.

She said they were looking for such a horse to be around 14 hands high, with a great temperament, who was happy to stand still for long periods of time, and be of good confirmation and health.

The horse also had to be patient with children with a disability. Mrs Guymer found that horse and called it “Dolly” and the children love her.

Morning tea and cakes were served after the cheque presentation. 

Mrs Guymer presented Lion’s president Bill Starr with an appreciation award for the club’s assistance.
