Every year, to keep us on our toes and up to date with the rest of the world, we try to arrange for some outside experts to visit Hong Kong to run training sessions for our teams of Volunteers and Instructors. This is to ensure that we are always keeping up with the trends and developments in the field of therapeutic riding, so that we are always able to provide the best services to the riders who attend our lessons.
From the 14th to 16th of March 2018 we were honoured to host Mrs. Vicky Melville, who is a Charted Physiotherapist from New Zealand. Vicky is also a qualified Para-Classifier, who has spent more than 30 years working across New Zealand, Australia and Hong Kong and more recently in Europe. While Vicky was in Hong Kong she conducted volunteer training sessions at both of our Pok Fu Lam and Tuen Mun Centres. All of the volunteers who attended the sessions learned a lot from Vicky’s wealth of experience.
