Country Living Film

To mark RDA's 50th anniversary last October one of our region's groups, Watershed, were chosen by National Office to showcase the work that we do.  In May last year Watershed were visited by a team of journalists and film crew.  They produced an article in the October issue of Country Living and a 5 minute film.  Click on the link below to see this incredibly moving video.

Musical Ride 4th Aug

We had a fantastic day for our Musical ride, warm and sunny.  This being RDA's 50th anniversary the theme for the music was Gold.  The coordination/planning by Sue Mack and the music by Keith Edwards was superb.  Even though the ponies tried to muck up the timings by pausing for a wee at inopportune times it was a brilliantly 

executed ride. Everyone had a lot of fun doing it and were very pleased to receive their rosettes and sashes from Princess Anne. Thank you to all the volunteers that helped to make all this happen, you're the best!  Well done everyone!
