In 2018, they received a grant from the President of the Russian Federation for the implementation of the Doctor Horse riding project. Those interested must submit an application in the form. She is placed in the group of the charity fund "In the name of good".
“Classes within the framework of the project are free! If anyone claims otherwise, you should know: they are scammers! Children with any diseases, disabilities, as well as those who have no contraindications for recreational horse riding will be admitted to classes,”explained Elena Sankina, executive director of the charity fund“In the name of good”.
Ekaterina Danilova from Vologda shares her impressions of her participation in the Doctor Horse project of the last season:
“Initially, the son was not enthusiastic about the idea of going for a ride on a horse. Nowadays it is generally difficult to surprise children with something. I thought, let's go once, and then we'll see. But after the very first visit, I saw such a genuine delight in the child, such a sparkle in his eyes, a great desire to come to Vivat again as soon as possible! All the way home, I listened to his impressions that he rode himself. The son is counting the days until the next visit, he is not afraid even of the long journey and fatigue after school."
Within the framework of the project, 70 disabled children with various diseases will be able to take 10 free lessons in recreational horse riding.
