A pony greeted shoppers in Henley town centre as part of a fund-raising campaign to help disabled children ride horses.
The three-year-old miniature Shetland, called Dumpling, was in Market Place dressed in tinsel and bows as members of the Riding for the Disabled Association’s Henley branch collected donations.
Secretary Jane Brazil said: “We had a brilliant reaction from the public and without the pony it wouldn’t have been the same. We let the children pat her and she was very good.”
The branch uses Checkendon Equestrian Centre and teaches students from The Henley College’s Pathways group as well as special needs primary school children. It is free for the children and is funded by donations and fund-raising.
If you would like to support the group, call Mrs Brazil on (01491) 641239.
