Horses get new fly masks

HORSES at the Maryborough Riding for the Disabled Association yards are sporting new summer rugs with fly face masks, thanks to Kingston Rural Supplies.

Manager Tracy Hose donated the rugs at a recent Christmas break-up after spotting the horses in poor condition while driving to work.

An RDA spokesman said members greatly appreciated the donation as the club depended entirely on local support and fundraising to run programs for people with physical or mental disabilities.

Currently 22 people from six to 60 years enjoy safe, stimulating and therapeutic horse-related activities.

Ms Hose also presented a $124 cheque from Australian company Ruralco who manufacture OSKA Professional products and support more than 90 charities and organisations throughout Australia.

“As part of their corporate responsibility OSKA donate a percentage of the net profits from the sale of OSKA-branded products and have included their entire network of rural-based businesses.

“Kingston’s Rural management select a local organisation, passing on these donations within the local community.”
