Riding for the Disabled is a very good thing indeed. The British charity has been helping more than 30,000 people every year for the past 40 years.
Convicted fraudster Bill Roddie, on the other hand, does not comes across as a nice man at all. One of Scotland's largest landlords, he does not appear to like Scotland's right-to-roam legislation and has been accused of breaching the Land Reform Act on his Sauchieburn estate.
The chief executive of Spectrum Properties does not seem to be a fan of Riding for the Disabled either.
Bannockburn Riding for the Disabled Association, which has been on the Sauchieburn estate for the past 20 years, used to provide therapy for more than 200 disabled adults and children every week and has trained riders for the Paralympics. But a long-standing row betwen the RDA and Roddie over access to the estate means that the centre is under threat.
What gives events a sinister turn is that Roddie, who bought the estate in 2007, has been accused of deliberately removing temporary repairs to the access road in order to force the charity off his estate. His accounts suggest that his business empire is heavily indebted and suspicions are that with the charity gone, he will have more room to manoeuvre.
Roddie has also maintained a policy of total silence towards the press.
Given how crucial decent road access is to the disabled riders, numbers at the Riding for the Disabled Centre have now dropped to 20 riders a week and there are fears that the centre might close.
The centre really needs support. You can donate at JustGiving here.
