About

I'm Lynda and you may know me as the Yard Manager at the Glasgow Group for the Riding for the Disabled Group.

Our team of staff and volunteers provide equine therapy to around 400 children and adults with disabilities from across the Greater Glasgow area. We provide 36 hours of riding sessions per week and rely on the help of over 100 volunteers to deliver our service.

Event details

Repairing the Tulliallan Trail

It is with a very sad and angered heart that I write this, vandals have not only broke down the fencing but stole, crushed and smashed ALL of the precious ornamental animals, figurines, fairies and gifts given to us by the riders and volunteers over the years.

To anyone who hasn't had the benefit of visiting the Tulliallan it is a network of all weather paths where our riders, some of whom couldn't access these areas without riding a horse, can go to relax and enjoy the countryside. Our sanctuary of peace and quiet, our place of contemplation and the home of many a riotous game of eye-spy is gone, devastated, wrecked beyond thinking, beyond words. 

RIP Green rabbit, little lamb, all the froggies and our wonderful tribe of fairies in the fairy village, gone but not forgotten.

We've set up this fundraising page to help with the costs of the repairs. Obviously all the hand crafted mementos cannot be replaced along with the hours of hard work that goes into maintaining the trail, specifically by our volunteer Gary, however donations will be used to replace the fencing and to secure the area making it a safe and accessible for our riders to enjoy again soon.

So glad to see you've exceeded your fundraising target for the Tulliallan Trail. I'm sorry I didn't get to see the original trail, but hope I can help build the new one.
