March 2017 Recipients
Tauranga District Riding for the Disabled provides a unique form of therapy called ‘Hippotherapy’ (Hippo meaning horse), which includes riding, horsemanship and vocational skills.
The organisation received $1,769.75 to purchase 12 coloured plastic poles, arena letter markers and new jump stands to replace old equipment.
The plastic coloured poles will improve the riding sessions, as they act as visual cues and help structure the lessons. The large letter markers provide clear and comprehensive targets, and the jump stands help create more teaching opportunities and challenges for the riders.
