Here are some of the people, companies, government departments and friends who have helped achieve the Vision so far:

  • The Hon. Jennifer Rankin MP, Minister for Disability Services, who granted $30,000 in January 2009. This was used to dismantle the indoor arena from the old Blackwood site, to be rebuilt at O'Halloran Hill. When the arena is finally rebuilt, our riders will again have all-weather shelter and shade, and won't have to miss lessons because it's too hot or too wet and windy.
