A building society has ridden to the aid of a Harden-based horse charity with a £1,200 donation.

Riding for the Disabled will use the cash from the Yorkshire Building Society’s Charitable Foundation to help set up stable management and carriage driving courses.

Staff at YBS’s Shipley branch nominated the charity, based at the St Ives estate, for the donation.

Riding for the Disabled is working with Bradford Council and local businesses to convert the coach house into a suitable location to offer the classes.

Louise Forbes, from the YBS’s Shipley branch, said: “One of the charity’s volunteers has been a customer of ours for some time and often tells us all about the great work the charity is doing – she really inspired us to find some way to help.”
