An Aberdeen charity is calling on new volunteers to assist with its groundbreaking sessions.
Aberdeen RDA, based at Tillyoch Equestrian Centre near Milltimber, is seeking people to help provide life-changing horse-riding therapy to local disabled people.
Following the winter break, the group is hoping to resume sessions and welcome additional members of the public to help with a range of roles, such as leading the ponies and supporting the riders with games and activities.
Catherine Stott has volunteered with RDA for 14 years and said she would heartily recommend volunteering for a number of reasons.
She added: “We would love some new volunteers to join our merry band. All we ask is that you give us three hours of your time a week – and not even every week.
“We always provide full training and you will only have to help with a role which you are comfortable doing.
“I decided to volunteer after I’d seen RDA in action, I can’t recommend it enough.
“As well as the joy you get from watching the riders develop and move forward, you also benefit a lot mentally and physically from the experience.
“Volunteering helps to keep me fit and I have gained so many friends from being a part of Aberdeen RDA.”
The group sessions run on Tuesday and Friday mornings and provide riding opportunities for around 25 riders every week.
