There'll be lots of evening activities planned and good ol' fashion hospitality, camp-oven cook ups, campfire sing-alongs, boot-scooting boogie, bush poetry, parks and wildlife ranger talks and night walks, the sharing of horse riding tips and about as much fun along the way as we can muster up.
'Horses for Courses' is helping to raise awareness of the issues Aussie Bush Kids and their families face, some of these include:
~ Social isolation implications effecting mental health, social and emotional well-being
~ Educational inequities including distance education challenges & boarding school blues
~ Insufficient access to healthcare & specialist services,
~ Inadequate access to reliable services such as telecommunication & road networks
~ and the pressures which come with climatic uncertainties and unrelenting drought!
