Firstly, thank you for taking interest in my petition! My aim is to raise awareness about Erme Valley Riding for the Disabled. The RDA is a charity that gives mentally and physically disabled people a chance to learn to ride horses. It is an amazing opportunity for them to do something fun and therapeutic, at the same time.
Erme Valley RDA is based at The Brooke, near Ivybridge, has 160 riders, 120 helpers, 8 instructors and 10 horses. They train all of their volunteers and horses from scratch to ensure they have the knowledge, training and understanding to help with the RDA. With your help, the RDA gives 3.5 thousand rides a year. But, it costs £45,000 a year to do all of this. All this money comes from the public, so if you stop giving, you are taking away all of these thousands of rides from adults and children.
Thank-you for reading, and please sign my petition.
