An Essendon-based riding group has hosted a special ride to mark a charity’s 50th anniversary.

Volunteers and coaches from the Warrenwood Riding for the Disabled Group - part of the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) - celebrated the milestone with a gathering at their base at Essendon Place Farm.

Attended by dignitaries including the new Essendon vicar Theresa Musiwasho and parish council chairman Mike Brown, the event formed part of the 'Golden Horseshoe' celebrations which are being held at bases across Hertfordshire.

The RDA has nearly 500 centres nationwide, and provides activities such as horse riding and skills development for children and adults with physical and learning disabilities.

Warrenwood group chairman David Carter hailed the day as "brilliant" and said Essendon has always supported the group, with many volunteers drawn from the area.
