Committee member Liz Bonker said the RDA volunteers and riders were excited to share the achievement of another building stage with the community.

‘After much sweat and hard work, the new lean was built,’ she said.

‘It will keep horses and volunteers out of the weather while they gear up and shelter the horses between lessons.

‘The ramp which riders use is now also under cover so that they will stay dry when it is raining.’

Everyone is invited to the fair, which will include performances from WA trick riders Girls, Girls, Girls, cakes and craft stalls, pony rides, a bouncy castle and sausage sizzle.

Oakford RDA riders will also be demonstrating their riding skills on the day.

The country fair will run from 10am to 4pm at Oakford RDA, on Gossage Road, which is located between Kargotich and Hopkinson roads in Oldbury.

Riding for the Disabled Centre (Oakford) is a voluntary, non-profit organisation based in Gossage Road Cardup, that provides opportunities for people with disabilities and special needs.

RDA enables disabled children and adults in the community to access multi-diagnostic services through safe horse riding and related equestrian activities.
