My story

[p]I have been very privileged to have volunteered for Quest RDA for almost 20 years now and have been so lucky to experience first hand the life changing affects horses have on our riders. Our riders all have disabilities and special needs and for many of them horse riding is the only activity that they can engage with as they are not able to ride a bike, play football, do gymnastics....... Riding has huge benefits both physically and mentally. Something magical happens between the horse and the rider enabling them to do things that they might not be otherwise able to do. The benefits are endless, riding helps balance, core strength, relaxes tight muscles, increases self esteem and confidence, interaction with the volunteers helps communication and social skills, there is a huge sense of achievement and a real chance to shine.[/p][p]Quest RDA is 50 years old on 19th April 2021 so I have chosen to challenge myself by doing 50 star jumps for 50 consecutive days. I am not someone who normally likes exercise so this will be a real challenge for me! Our six horses are our unsung heroes, without them Quest could not continue doing the good work. However, keeping horses is expensive and our annual running costs are now around £40,000. The COVID pandemic has severely affected our fundraising and on top of this we have had some very hefty vet bills recently so I would really like to do my bit to raise some money for our wonderful group. As everyone involved with Quest is a volunteer all money raised goes directly towards helping our riders.[/p][p]I know that these are difficult times but I would really appreciate any support that you can give. Thank you Julie x[/p]
