Kelly Rinaldi-Bull said her daughter Taiyisa (8), who has autism, suggested they collect funds for her vaulting team at the Carine branch of RDA WA after her husband Matthew adorned their Farnham Pass house with lights.

‘We have just moved into the house this year,’ Mrs Rinaldi-Bull said. ‘My daughter started doing the vaulting with the RDA team (and) our team is needing a lot of new equipment.

‘My husband stuck up the lights and my daughter said ‘let’s put out the wishing well’.

‘They are on every night as soon as it gets dark.’

Vaulting is one of several programs run by RDA WA. It involves riders learning to perform gymnastic exercises on barrels, then progressing on to moving horses.
