Everyone had a successful day at the showjumping event at the Centre today.
Victoria Cheshire won her event and qualified for the Nationals, Lyn Ford was brilliant on Frodo, coming third. Amalie Robinson came first in her category and Alex Barber came fourth in his. Well done everyone!
New Field Shelter
The base for the new field shelter in the top field has been put in using some very heavy railway sleepers . They were well used with decades of tar and creosote on them so they should last a while, even allowing for the stuff that now coats the volunteers clothing.
The next challenge will be getting the delivery lorry into the field!
RDA has introduced a new Coaching Pathway launched in October 2018 which is designed in modules to improve coaching, horse care and knowledge and improve therapy and medical knowledge. The photo is from the Therapy and Medical Module training day that we held at Wilton on Tuesday 15th Jan. We had 16 participants and made full use of the new clubroom and 6 of our wonderful equines.
Mid-West was the first region to present the new module training. Every Quarter there will be a training day covering one of the modules. They will move around our region, which is quite large so that everyone can attend one in their area. On February 7th there is a Coaching Module training day at Avon Riding Centre and on March 2nd there is a Horse care and Knowledge Module training day at Cotswold RDA at Cheltenham racecourse. In April we start the 3 modules again with the Coaching Module training day on Tuesday 16th April. Its all quite new but also very exciting.
