RDA National Championships, 12, 13 & 14 July, Hartpury College, supported this year by the pony club.
The RDA National Championships returned this year as the biggest event of its kind for riders with disabilities; demonstrating over three days the very best of grassroots and world-class para-equestrianism. For the first time the event featured an RDA level Showjumping competition.
The event also marks the official launch of the RDA Tracker – a brand new tool to help assess the therapeutic benefits of riding (more information here).
The National Championships is RDA’s flagship event, featuring hundreds of competitors in a range of classes including Dressage, Countryside Challenge, Vaulting, Carriage Driving, Showjumping, Musical Ride, Musical Drive, Horse Care & Knowledge, Arts & Crafts and Best Turned Out.

Well done to Tori Wallace who competed for the first time at this level and achieved a 6th in her dressage test, 4th in Best Turned Out and 3rd in her collage that won the regional round. — with Tori Wallace.

 

Livy Hoyland was selected to represent the South West in the BYRDS Inter-Regional competition at Keysoe on 29/30 June, and finished in 2nd Individually and her team came 4th!   Well done Livy!

Well done to our team who took part in the Avon Vale ODE at West Wilts on Sunday 30th June.   Team 3rd!     The Team consisted of Phoebe who had a great dressage score, unfortunately one fence down SJ and clear XC (finished 7th Individually).   Laura Windel had an amazing dressage score too and clear SJ and XC and finished 5th Individually, closely followed by both Nadine (6th) and Frankie!

Laura Wall competed as an individual and came overall 2nd!   Rosie also competed individually, but it wasn’t her day this time.    There were 45 entries in this class and 22 teams so this is an amazing achievement.

Well done to all that took part, let’s hope that we can keep it going!

Victoria Wallace competed in the regional RDA dressage competition on Monday 20th May. She came 3rd, just missing a place at the Nationals. However second place cannot attend, so Victoria has been asked to go, which she is very excited about especially as the Pony Club are supporting the RDA National Championships this year.  We wish Victoria Good Luck for the Nationals!
