A beautiful misty morning and special task in the Essex countryside - and Andy reaching an impressive milestone with 100 Good Deeds under his belt. Bravo.

We met Andrea at Barrow Farm Riding and Carriage Driving for the Disabled to help start a project for a memorial sensory garden, with disabled access and stimulation for all the senses. Our task was more of a digging and demolition job to turn the area into a blank canvas.

With only short breaks for the two minute silence and some tea, everyone galloped into action to chop, fork and dig. Becca made friends with a frog (or possibly a toad) and we all were in for a treat as we met the horses and ponies at the end of the task.

It will be great to see this wonderful project continue and we are booked in again for some more horse play on the 27th: https://www.goodgym.org/v3/sessions/memorial-garden-upgrade-at-barrow-farm-riding-for-the-disabled-8249852c-eae4-4bfb-9d4c-f45ed1edc89e
