The Ballina and Districts branch of the Riding for the Disabled Association is on the look-out for new volunteers.
The branch, which is located in Teven, helps people with disabilities experience the joy of horse riding in a safe, fun environment.
Volunteer coordinator Deirdre Mikkelson said riders from across the region attended the centre, however more volunteers are needed to meet the demand.
‘RDA could not provide this service without its dedicated volunteers,’ Ms Mikkelson said.
‘Ballina and Districts RDA centre is seeking committed volunteers particularly on Saturdays. Lessons are provided on Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday’s with most volunteers dropping in one of those days a week between 8am and 1pm.
‘However, any length of time is fine’.
Ms Mikkelson said previous experience with horses or people with disabilities was not necessary as training would be provide by existing volunteers.
‘If you’re interested in volunteering please call Gloria Thornton on 0488 766 721 or drop in to our Term 1 Saturday training day on Saturday 3 February between 9-11am.
The centre is located at Glen Burnie, 377 Houghlahans Creek Road, Teven.
