There's neigh better way to get into the festive spirit!

The event takes place between 11am and 3pm on Saturday 2 December. Please note, it's cash only, with all proceeds going to help support the fantastic work of Glasgow RDA.

A spokesperson said: "The Christmas Fayre is a wonderful way to get in the mood for the festive season in the company of our amazing animals and equally amazing volunteers. You can have fun, perhaps win a prize and help support our valuable work."

Every year, Glasgow RDA welcomes around 170 children and adults with disabilities from across the Greater Glasgow area – providing therapy, fitness, skill development and opportunities for progression.

There's no age limit, with attendees ranging from young patients at Glasgow's Royal Hospital for Children who are recovering their strength after cancer surgery to people living with dementia treasuring the opportunity to nuzzle into a pony’s neck.

Glasgow RDA focuses on the therapeutic and health benefits of bringing people and horses together. Activities on offer, thanks to the support of around 100 volunteers, include:

* Hippotherapy
* School riding sessions
* Equine therapy sessions
* Adult equine therapy sessions
* Stable management sessions
* Tea with a Pony.

More than half of the participants are autistic and experience anxiety relating to their condition. Horses have been found to be therapeutic for people with anxiety and the soothing effect lasts after the sessions are complete.
