A volunteer at a riding school out the outskirts Hemel Hempstead has been recognised for her hard work and dedication at an awards ceremony.

Margaret Keith – instructor for Gaddesden Place Riding for the Disabled – was nominated for an accolade at the Pro-Action Awards in St Albans, which honours volunteers across Hertfordshire who give up their time for free.

The horse-lover spends her spare time at the riding school in Briden’s Camp, which enables disabled riders to get in the saddle.

The application form from her colleagues said: “She is an outstanding instructor to us, the volunteers and to her riders and also has a deep understanding of the ponies.

Even though Margaret – who has volunteered at the riding school for three years, – didn’t win, she said: “I felt very honoured.

“It was very humbling, and I know there are lots of others who give so much time, energy and commitment to volunteering.”
