Marlene Steyl wrote to the Scenic Drive to help her make her son and daughter-in-law's Monday. 

"My son and daughter-in-law both had horses and saddles of their own, but with a baby on the way and no medical aid and the COVID-19 salary cuts, my son had to sell one of the horses and both saddles to cover the delivery and make ends meet."

"They kept the one-horse because they both love riding and take turns to ride, it's their me-time. But the problem is they have to borrow a saddle all the time, which is not the ideal situation. They cannot afford to buy a saddle now because they are still trying to make up for what they've lost in salary, during COVID-19 salary cuts and the hospital costs," Steyl wrote. 

Horse riding is therapeutic for both her son and daughter-in-law, and she would like the Scenic Drive to help her surprise them with a horse saddle of their own.
