I started volunteering with Perry RDA twelve years ago because I have autism and being with animals and especially horses helps me with communication and keeps me calm.
I love looking after the horses and ponies also seeing the riders that come on a Saturday who get a lot out of it. To know that I have been a part of keeping the animals healthy for them to ride is a huge plus for me. I also clean the tack regularly.
I used to be part of the vaulting team. I have cantered on a horse which I never thought I would, and I have stood up on a moving horse in walk in vaulting.
