Throughout the month of March, 600 Club Rainbow beneficiaries and their families got to enjoy horse riding sessions and other equestrian activities at the Singapore Turf Club Riding Centre.
An Equestrian Experience for Club Rainbow Beneficiaries
Organised as a collaboration between the Singapore Turf Club Riding Centre (STCRC), Club Rainbow and Corporate Alliance for Good Ltd (CAforGood), the series of events consisted of over 30 equine-centric tours and horse-riding sessions.
During the activities held in March, Club Rainbow’s beneficiaries had to chance to go on a behind-the-scenes tour and interact with the horses at the riding centre.
Another unique experience for the beneficiaries and their families was the chance to feed and groom the horses.
“Club Rainbow supports and empowers children with chronic illnesses and their families in their journey towards an enriching life. With the support of the team at STCRC, we were able to provide over 600 beneficiaries with an enriching equine experience which they may not otherwise have had the opportunity to participate in. We are extremely thankful to everyone who helped bring this programme to fruition for our beneficiaries. Club Rainbow will continue to foster meaningful partnerships with the community to support and make a difference to the lives of our beneficiaries,” said Mr Teo Siang Loong, Executive Director of Club Rainbow (Singapore).
“A Great March Holiday Gift”
“The equine tour was definitely a great March holiday gift for our family, and we are grateful to STCRC and Club Rainbow for this special arrangement. The kids really enjoyed themselves as they learnt how to groom horses, and even rode under the guidance of the instructors at STCRC. What was especially heart-warming was how STCRC staff and volunteers were so patient and helpful when it came to handling and answering questions from our kids. Getting to meet and interact with a horse and learning to be confident around one, is a first for my kids. This was truly a memorable experience for us,” said Tiffany, mother of a Club Rainbow beneficiary.
