First responder families learn a new skill: horse riding through the bush

This two-hour trail ride was loved by adults and children from the Illawarra first responder community.

Suited to all abilities, the tour leaders guided participants through the vast bush land after some introductory lessons. It was a little scary at first for those without riding experience, but once in the bush they soon relaxed and got into the ride.

The families joined together for some morning tea afterwards, chatting over their shared experiences and forming new connections.
