Care home supports Riding for the Disabled
A SALISBURY care home has adopted Wilton’s Riding for the Disabled Association as its official charity for the next year.
Salisbury Manor has decided to support the local Riding for the Disabled group, which provides horse-based therapy for more than 200 children and adults across south Wiltshire.
Salisbury Manor manager Claire Lousteau said: “The work they do with people of all ages is truly inspiring and the effect the horses have on people’s confidence and fitness is incredible.”
Sue Ayling, volunteer and head of fundraising for the Wilton branch of Riding for the Disabled said: “It’s wonderful that Salisbury Manor has decided to support us for the coming year.
“Bonding with the horses provides a calming experience for some of our participants, building their self-esteem as well as being great fun and challenge.”
Staff from Salisbury Manor will be running the Salisbury Half Marathon, aiming to raise enough money to feed two of the Riding for the Disabled horses this winter.
