Thank you Selina Boyce, for our invitation to come and see the demo by Russell Higgings. It was a lovely sunny warm day, with a good turnout, over 100 people, all proceeds going to the M.S Society and the M.D.I.R.F.
Russell Higgings, 4 star senior Parelli Instructor from New Zealand. Based on respect for the love of horses and understanding horse nature and psychology-Parelli enables anyone at any level to have fun with their horse and achieve amazing results.
Further advanced techniques were then shown by other riders, Anthony and Wiz a gorgeous grey highland horse, showing us how Wiz can bridle himself. How Jamie could get on his horse Puff, without the girth done up on the saddle, what balance, then some bridle less riding, there’s a fabulous bond between those two.
After all the viewing it makes you feel relaxed too. Thank you also for the lovely array of sandwiches and fruit for after.
I was grateful in having the use of my Tri-ride (an import from Italy) designed by a disabled man.my husband purchased mine from EPC wheelchairs based in Farnborough (Hampshire).I am delighted with this attachment, I keep my independence with it as I can put it on and off myself, the thing that sold it to me on the day of the demo!! I can reverse in it; it has 5 speed settings, cruise control and a sports mode which I’ve yet to experience. It can do 30miles on one charge and has a quick charging time of 3-4hours and you can go pretty fast should you need too!
