Sandie has helped me for 7 years now, and taught me so much, and has always welcomed me into her home. She has also been very supportive for me when my dad passed away. Sandie has recently helped me break in a horse and without her, I couldn’t have done it. HPRA is like a second home for me and I’ve always looked up to her, even in year 6, I wrote a speech about Sandie and made a poster about how she was my idol.
HPRA has been a very happy place for me and I’m always smiling here whether it’s riding my horses or working around the property or even talking with some of the other girls.
Sandie has always pushed me to be a better and more knowledgeable horse rider and over the years I’ve realised Sandie will never put any of her lesson kids on a horse they can’t handle or do something they’re not capable of doing.
