Farrier Douglas Crawford recently showed pupils from Elie Primary School how to check your shoes fit correctly – if you’re a horse.
Kind-hearted pupils have been fundraising to help pay for shoes for Jane, who is used by East Fife and Scooniehill Riding for the Disabled Association – known as Scooniehill RDA – to provide rides for disabled people.
Lily Mason, president of Scooniehill RDA, said: “We are truly grateful to all the pupils and staff at Elie Primary School for their generous support.”
Headteacher Maggie Mackay had her work cut out dragging her pupils away from Jane and back for lunch as they all thoroughly enjoyed their visit.
Lesley Duffin, RDA helper, praised the pupils, adding: “The girls were very polite and so sensible, and well behaved around Jane.”
Scooniehill RDA provides disabled people in the north east Fife area with the opportunity to ride or carriage drive to benefit their health and wellbeing.
Jane the mare is owned by Scooniehill RDA and lives at Kilconquhar Equestrian Centre.
