    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.

    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 wouldn’t still be here if it wasn’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 💖🐴

    Hi same there is a place call only foals and horses in Accrington I think and I also think you would really like it. It has so many cute little minis that are too old to be in work they also have some other horses I think it would be a nice place for you to go but it is quite far from where you live...thank you for reading 🖤💜

      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. :)))

    Lived this. You did a wonderful job showing us what the RDA is all about. I especially found interesting the testing your knowledge section. I was surprised to learn that grass clippings are harmful to horses. I thought horses graze on grass?
