MEMBERS of Pendle Riding for the Disabled club enjoyed a 'cracking good' Easter egg hunt at the weekend.

More than 20 members took part in looking for treasure among straw bales at the Whitemoor stables, in Foulridge.

They were joined by Fiddler, the miniature Shetland pony, who helped them search for the prizes. Afterwards, they were treated to a feast of chocolate and cakes that were kindly donated by Keelham Farm Shop in Skipton.

A spokesman for the group, Kate Bailey, said that the day had been a resounding success and that all the riders and their families enjoyed a wonderful day in the sunshine.

Pendle Riding for the Disabled Association is based in Barnoldswick. It currently supports 187 disabled people in the Lancashire and Yorkshire regions, by enriching their lives through horses.

It supports children and adults with physical, learning and sensory disabilities. The physical therapy delivered by activities improves fitness, muscle strength, balance and coordination, benefitting core strength and mobility.

Beyond the physical, RDA activities help communication, confidence, well being and relationship building.
