Two images of a horse enjoying her working and retired life

Goodnight, KC

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of sweet Riding for the Disabled (RDA) pony, KC.

After a career with Crosby RDA that spanned 12 years where KC worked to give disabled adults and children of all abilities the experience of riding, she was retired to The Horse Trust in 2019 at the grand old age of 23. In her working life, KC was a firm favourite for a variety of reasons, one of which was that she would stand patiently to allow her wheelchair-bound riders to mount her assisted by a hoist which would give her riders freedom of movement they can’t experience in their daily life. She was also popular with the stronger riders and was ridden in ten regional championships!

We say goodbye to KC knowing that she served the community in a very special way for many years and got to enjoy her retirement here at The Horse Trust surrounded by equine companions, including her best chums Maryland and Pollyanna, and the love of our Equine Care Team who will all miss her terribly and wish the very best for her as she trots across the rainbow bridge, forever in our hearts.

The Horse Trust relies on public donations to continue to give a forever home to retired military, police, Royal Mews and RDA horses and to care for neglected rescued horses. If you would like to be part of our story, please consider a donation today.
