Jamie Manning, along with his wife Karen and three children, is riding horses from Tilpa to Dubbo to raise awareness and vital funds for the charity Limbs4Life, which provides information and support to amputees.

It’s a cause close to Mr Manning’s heart.

“What they do is they provide peer supportto amputees by other amputees and information like wound care,” he said.

“Ihad a car accident in 2014 where the car caught alight, I was trapped in the car and I was lucky to survive.

“Due to the bad infections they had to amputate to save my life. Ilost all the fingers on my left hand and I also lost my left leg.

“It’sbeen a long journey learning to ride and so fourth but Iworked with horses all my life so Imade it a goal to do so.”

Mr Manning started out from Tilpa on September 17 and had planned to spend 22 days on the road.

But inundated roads and persistent rain across western NSW has made some roads un-passable, adding about a week to the journey.

The family rides about 20 to 25 kilometres each day, and on Tuesday, October 4 they reached Nyngan.

Mr Manning said theresponse they’ve received from people along the way has been remarkable.

“We’ve been welcomed with open arms. Once you start to do something good all the good peoplecome out of thewoodwork and everyone wants to help us out,” he said.

“We stayed at the pony club at Cobar for quite a few nights and then Nyngan showground [and]the old school [in]Nevertire.

“It’shumbling…it’s a credit to themhow generous they are and friendly, always wanting to stop and have a yarn.”
