    My name is Esme and this is me so I guess my channel is 'This Esme'.
    I make videos about all things horsey such as Vlogs with the ponies, horse care videos and edits of me riding to help other equestrians learn more about these beautiful animals as you never stop learning with horses. :)
    Casper 15hh grey Connemara
    Mickey 13hh cream pony
    Willow - White paint donkey
    Bruno - Brown donkey
    Toby - Black donkey
    (Sometimes our guineapigs and chickens are featured too)
    I am very fortunate to have all these animals in my life.

    The people running this and competing are such an inspiration for everyone. For them to do such amazing things, it's incredible. They're so skilled. I didn't know about this until this video and I feel that things like this aren't properly televised and seen. I'll definately be volunteering when im older.

  • Defeating Disability

    I ride at my local RDA Group for years. On my new TheXvid channel I have done a couple of videos about RDA. I have also written about RDA on my blog. My sister now volunteers at the stables too!. Without the RDA I can say I wouldnโ€™t still be here if it wasnโ€™t for the horses and ponies and amazing volunteers. I would love it if you checked out my blog and TheXvid channel. RDA really does change lives for the better ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿด

      Carly Szalay If you search it up on google, then the website has a thing that finds the ground nearest you. Then you can phone up and go and find out about it, and they will help you start volunteering. I really recommend it though. It is such a lovely thing to be part of. :)))

    As a volunteer at RDA's for nearly 2 years now, I am forever greatful for being able to experience it. I have seen people confined to wheel chairs jump on a horse and trot independently. It is incredible to see the difference the horse can make in peoples lives. What so many people take for granted, like freedom to move around, the horse gives to these amazing souls. I have seen people who were too scared of people to say a word, hop on a horse, and begin smiling and laughing. I have seen, and felt myself, the overwhelming love and acceptance the horse gives to everyone. The horse does not care if you look a little different. It is not something that can be described in words, and is truly a life long gift you will be forever thankful for. I stumbled on this amazing organsiaztion by accident. Weather it is a large barn with an indoor arena with the land actually owned by the RDA that operates all day 6 days a week, to a small branch who rides in an open grass arena, operating a couple times a week, volunteer at an RDA- You won't regret it ๐Ÿ’š
