RDA – Celebrating 50 years with the Royals

Nov 01 2018

We are proud to be associated with the Stratford upon Avon RDA Group . They recently celebrated their 5oth Anniversary and the official opening of its new classroom in the presence of HRH  Princess Anne, RDA President.

Our Managing Director George Scholes along with Samantha Beauchamp, Marketing Assistant were lucky enough to receive an invite to this special local event.

The programme of the day started with The Princess Royal watching the riders and horses in the outdoor arena with a demonstration and line up to meet the riders and volunteers. Next was a visit to the new classroom where Mrs Jenkins(Group Organiser for the RDA) demonstrated the hydraulic access lift that we recently installed to enable the children access to the classroom. Her Royal Highness was then formally introduced to the sponsors of the event and also met past volunteers. The afternoon finished in the indoor arena where Her Royal Highness watched our lift which enables riders to be raised to the correct height for mounting their horse. This elevates the volunteers from any Manual handling strains and from trips and falls (previously used was a modular mounting block system). This speeds up the mounting process. Now riders and volunteers can get on with the riding and have more fun!

With thanks to the RDA for the invitation and also Steward Band, Photographer.
