Finn first came to ride at Riverside when he was five. He wasn't sure at first but after his walk along the track he decided that riding was for him.
He has continued to ride with us every week and we have had the pleasure of watching him grow into a fine young man. He usually had a story for us when he came and often brought his friends along ( 5 Seconds of Summer, Rose from Dr Who and Megan to name but a few).
Finn enjoyed everything that riding had to offer: his everyday lessons, meeting Santa on the Christmas Ride, taking part in a riding demonstration at Bingley Show, meeting Princess Ann and presenting her with a posy of flowers, being part of our musical rides, entering the Countryside Challenge qualifiers, supporting many of our fund raising events and he was the face of the video we used to try and secure some funding.
After all these years Finn has decided it is time to stop riding and have a go at new things. His last visit was a sad occasion but we wish him well and hope he will call and see us sometime. Eva Horse is always ready and willing for him to come and ride her.
