Oaklands College were visited last week by Pauline Bishop, who came
to see how her generous donation of £4000 to the Riding for the Disabled
Association (RDA) was spent. Pauline’s money was put towards the
purchase of a new pony in the Equine Department called Lara.
Pauline said of the experience: “I donated the money to Oaklands
as I wanted to help the RDA and I feel it is a worthwhile cause. I am so
glad I got to meet Lara today as I’ve not had a lot of interaction with
horses, and I was pleasantly surprised that I wasn’t frightened.”
Sarah Moreland, Senior Advanced Skills Practitioner for Oaklands
commented: “We chose Lara because we needed something calm and sensible
for the riders. Having Lara has opened up opportunities for some of our
learners who couldn’t have ridden previously. Pauline’s very generous
donation of £4000 originally paid for Lara and her health check and
another £100 today towards her food. We are very grateful for her
