Amorcita is a dark bay mare with a blaze on her face, standing at 15 hands high. She was born in 2001 in Argentina and has met famed RDA supporter, HRH Princess Anne! #horses #singapore #ridingforthedisabled #rda #horse #rdasg #ridingforthedisabledassociationofsingapore #ridingforthedisabledassociation #youthforcauses #yfc #rdashowcase17 #hippotherapy photo credit: Riding for the Disabled Association of Singapore
The money raised through its various fundraisers throughout the year, including this Open House Carnival, goes into the cost of maintaining RDA facilities, running the therapy program and the upkeep of their therapy horses.
Also, there are plenty of fun things to do like meeting the horses at the stable tours, having a selfie at the horse photo booth, and visiting the various carnival stalls.
Booklets of coupons at S$10 can be bought at the Open House.
The RDA is a charity my family supports and because of that, my daughter has gotten together with a few of her school mates to promote awareness of the charity and its open house.
Please visit their booth and lend her your support and encouragement, and have some fun with your family!
