Darren Todd has become the first volunteer at Wythenshawe Park Riding Stables to achieve the prestigious Young Equestrian Leaders Bronze Award.
Eighteen-year-old Darren has been volunteering at the Centre for a year where he has developed leadership skills and extended his knowledge and experience of working with horses.
Darren said, “I am very pleased to have achieved this and am looking forward to beginning the work for my Silver Award.”
Centre Proprietor, Fiona Jackson, commented that the YELA examiners had noted the excellence of Darren’s responses to their questions.
Fiona said, “We are delighted with Darren’s achievement and we look forward to helping other volunteers achieve this award in the future.” Darren is pictured with his certificate, Inky, one of the Centre’s horses and Centre Proprietor Fiona Jackson
