This year we took sixteen riders to compete on seven horses, in twenty five classes. Two of the horse’s were Jackie North’s horse Cookie, who was doing his first RDA competition, and Steph Boyce’s pony Daisy, who was doing its first competition.
Cookie had a good start to his competing career, but sadly Daisy went lame. Daisy is now fine after a rest, and Steph was allowed to compete on one of our horses instead, which was great.
A sad but fitting day for Leah Bradshaw and Shamrock, as it was their last day with us. we wish them well for the future. Louise Taylor and Elliot Evans won their classes on Shamrock.
A big thank you must go out to Dave Davis and Gloucester Land Rovers for supplying transport. Also to the team of volunteers who helped get horses ready the day before, and those that were there on the day helping to make it all possible and enable riders to enjoy the whole experience.
