Recipients will be identified and selected, not by Pathhead Equestrian Centre staff, but by local professionals who work with young people. The only criteria are that the youngster must be ‘pony mad’, genuinely cannot afford proper lessons and can easily make their own way to Pathhead Equestrian Centre in Kirriemuir on a regular basis. The ideal age group would probably be approximately between 11 and 16 years although this is not set in stone.
Pam Mackie, Senior Community Learning and Development Worker with Angus Council, is co-ordinating the fund with the help of other professional contacts. If you want to suggest a young person for the fund you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
