North West RDA Riders' success at RDA National Championships
Four riders from our Region competed at the RDA National Championships, which were held at Hartpury College on 15 and 16 July with competition on Sunday 17 July being suspended due to the unprecedented hot weather.
The riders competing from the North West were Annie Wordley (East Liverpool); Chloe Dooley (Isle of Man); Kassia Amelia Dudek-McGee (Nantwich and District RDA) and Sarah Kelly (Isle of Man). Riders competed in a mixture of Countryside Challenge, Dressage and Best Turned Out. Annie Wordley also entered the Photographic Competition with a lovely picture of “Henry”.
The team from the Isle of Man were riding horses kindly borrowed from Cotsworld RDA (Morph ridden by Chloe Dooley) and Annie Wordley (Harry ridden by Sarah Kelly). However, despite having very little time to get to know their horses, they both rode fantastically in their respective classes.
All riders, their horses and support teams did so well, and the Region is very proud. Thank you so much to all competed and to those who assisted the riders and horses; and loaned horses – you are all amazing!
