Little girl receives a saddle!!
This beautiful little girl suffers from a rare life altering disease that not only affected her muscles but also severely affected her eye sight.
Physiotherapy to strengthen the muscles alone is not enough and she urgently requires a set of Orthotic braces that costs over R20 628-00 per set if she is to have a reasonable gait and walking ability.
Due to the high cost of these specialist braces, we need to urgently do a fundraising for her as there is simply no other way to improve her walking and gait, and the set on loan she currently use need to be returned to the supplier, leaving her back at square one.
In the interim, horse riding is excellent exercise for her and she has access to horse riding therapy but have no saddle, and Dr Andre who is a keen horse rider had extra saddles and gifted this very bright and beautiful little girl with a saddle, so she can start her horse riding therapy. She had her first ride this weekend and she loved it.
