Region Celebrating Great Success at RDA National Championships!

A number of riders from 6 different groups attended the RDA National Championships, at Hartpury, from 13 to 15 July 2018 and the Region celebrated great success in Dressage, Countryside Challenge, Carriage Driving, Showing and Arts & Crafts Classes.

In addition to the competitions, everyone got into the spirit of the National Championships which is believed to be the biggest event of its kind in the world for disabled horse riders and carriage drivers. East Liverpool RDA hosted a fantastic BBQ for the Region and we partied at the yellow themed disco. Some of the Region’s Committee even had a go on the vaulting horse! A few photos are below.

Well done to each and every rider; the horses; their groups and volunteers. A massive thanks to everyone who supported them and made this possible.

Full results from all three days can be found on the RDA National Website click here to see them.
