Hannah shows off riding skills
Hannah Cotter of the RDAI Drumcar Group took part in a Trail Ride as part of a Riding for the Disabled Association (RDAI) display at the Discover Ireland Dublin Horse Show in the RDS in Dublin.
The RDAI (www.rdai.org) was established in 1969 and has more than 600 volunteers helping 700 people with disabilities to enjoy the benefits of horse riding and carriage driving.
The association has more than 55 voluntary groups nationally providing weekly lessons with classes for riders and drivers of all ages, abilities and disabilities.
Eight-year-old Hannah, from Smarmore, took part along with seven other riders from Dublin, Meath, Wicklow, Limerick, Down and Westmeath.
Hannah lives with her parents Elaine and Ken and sisters Alicia and Erin and has been riding for nearly two years and loves all the ponies in the riding school at the Railings in Ballapousta.
She attends St Bridget's School in Dundalk and her interests include swimming, jigsaws and looking after her pet dog and cat, Bailey and Katzy.
