For well over a decade Herefordshire Freemasons have sponsored a named horse at the Riding for the Disabled Centre at Holme Lacy. One such horse was aptly called Mason.
The present horse, Gypsy, took part in the recent Paralympic procession in Hereford, and is a most suitable horse in the Holme Lacy stable for riders who suffer from cerebral palsy.
Presenting the annual donation to Janet Alderton, Manager of the RDA Centre, Mike Roff, the newly appointed Deputy Provincial Grand Master of Herefordshire, expressed the continued support of local Freemasons for the Centre’s excellent and significant work with the disabled.
