CHILDREN from Crow Country got in the saddle for the first time as part of the world's biggest riding lesson.
Pupils from the Meldreth Manor Special School rode horses at the school's equestrian centre, while eight children from the Castle School in Cambridge were given a lesson at South Cambridge equestrian centre in Barrington.
The event was organised by the Riding for Disabled Association (RDA) to celebrate its 40th anniversary.
Antonia McKinley, from RDA, said: "The event is a chance for everyone, regardless of riding ability, to get together and have a good time. More importantly, it aims to raise awareness and funds for associations of disabled riders worldwide and for RDA UK."
