Rideability (Vision Australia Radio)

View descriptionShare

From Vision Australia Radio in Melbourne, Melaine Robinson takes us for a ride and shows us the important role horses play in animal-assisted therapies. 

Supervising production from Katharina Loesche. Training from the Community Media Training Organisation. Distributed by the Community Radio Network.

Produced for the 2021 CBAA National Features and Documentary Series.

The undeniable power of animal connections to humans shows us that a little bit of something good and special still exists in our world.

When the animals are horses, often big, flighty creatures, and the humans are some of the most vulnerable, this gets taken to another level.

During this 12-minute journey, you will meet some wonderful characters, equine and human, who will show you what can be achieved when the right space is provided.
