Vicky Dearness (Teacher at Hervey Bay Special School and enthusiastic RDA volunteer)

“As a teacher at Hervey Bay Special School and a great supporter of Maryborough Riding For the Disabled I have pride and appreciation for both my students and the volunteers at MRDA. I have never had a group of students that have embraced the riding experience so willingly and this is solely due to the positive and supportive attitude of the team at MRDA!!! Just looking at my students faces demonstrates to me how much they love their time riding and the fact that each and every student has embraced this experience is solely due to the beautiful people at MRDA.”

Bruce Thorpe (Volunteer)

“As a recently recruited volunteer at RDA Maryborough I am constantly amazed at the changes many of our riders have made in their posture and confidence since commencing riding with us. In several cases Parents have commented on how much their child has improved. I think this is what it is all about, the big smiles when they arrive and put their helmets on and obvious enjoyment as they ride their horses. This is what makes being a volunteer so worthwhile.”
