Jade a ten year old rider has been participating with the Manitoba Riding for the Disabled Association (MRDA) program since the spring of 2013.

The most common queries I receive after the holidays are for weight loss, cleansing and detoxification solutions, excessive calories, alcohol, junk food and desserts having left the body in need of a wellness reboot.
