HE MIGHT only be knee high to a shetland but Angus Webb is riding tall in the saddle after being named the best in the state.

Five-year-old Angus has been named Riding For the Disabled's Rider of the Year.

His mother Katrina said she was shocked when Angus was selected to represent Coffs Harbour and District RDA, and stunned when he won.

"The award recognises Angus's progression in riding ability as assessed by independent judges," Katrina said.

"I had forgotten all about the award until I received a phone call from Coffs RDA's head coach Mary Quirk to say that Angus had won.

"It was such a shock."

Angus, who has autism and a genetic condition, attends Narranga Public School but rides at Valery Trails each Tuesday.

He joined Riding for the Disabled when he was just three years old.

"He has really progressed over the past two years and has developed many riding and social skills through the program," Katrina said.

"My husband Ashley and I want to thank everybody at Coffs Harbour and District RDA. So many people give their time freely so that children like Angus have the opportunity to ride.

"It means so much as parents that people are so caring and generous, that they want to help and promote the abilities that people with disabilities in our community have."
