On 25th June, Riding for the Disabled in Cascais held its second Open Day and was pleased to welcome 30 riders, their families and friends for a morning of fun and games followed by refreshments. Many parents do not often have the opportunity of seeing their children actually sitting on a horse and this was a source of admiration and pride for many. They were also able to chat to RDA volunteers, staff and board members, receive feed back and discuss specific difficulties and also to mingle with other parents, families and friends.
