SEVERAL young volunteers have completed their training at Haworth Riding for the Disabled.

They have received certificates and rosettes after being trained up in the yard at the Vale Mill Lane stables.

The charity welcomes young volunteers aged from 12 upwards.

Haworth Riding for the Disabled founder, Jackie Butterfield, says: "Our young volunteers work alongside others in the arena and stables.

"It is a great opportunity to build new friendships and learn at the same time."

There is a wide variety of voluntary roles available with the charity, ranging from helping out in the yard and with horse care to side walking and reception duties.

Jackie adds: "Whatever your skills, you will have something to offer."
