Montgomery Area RDA Group donation from Invertek Drives.

Montgomery Area RDA Group has received a welcome boost to its finances in the form of a donation from a local technology company, Invertek Drives.  The group, which is responsible for raising all the money required to hire ponies for its riders,  meets each Tuesday in term-time at Penycoed Stables,  Pant, near Oswestry in Shropshire.  The stables recently opened an indoor school, enabling riding to take place in all weathers.  Riders come from Brynllywarch Hall School, near Kerry in Montgomeryshire.  This year two of them took part in the Countryside Challenge, and one came second and thus qualified to take part in the finals at Hartpury in July.

The picture shows the group’s chairman, June Little, and vice-chairman and treasurer, Penny Harris, holding the cheque, surrounded by the volunteers, two of our riders and ponies, with their instructor at the back.

Dear All,

We are trying to gather information about how well you all receive information about events and training from the N Wales Region, and what events and training you would like us to offer if possible.

Regional Qualifiers

Please find attached entry forms and info for the N Wales Regional Qualifiers at Pen Y Coed Riding Stables on May 22nd  2018
If you are not sure which dressage test you should be entering then please get in contact with me, there is a table of available classes and tests attached with the booking form- including the NEW PAIRS dressage class. Please note any pairs wishing to enter the PAIRS dressage must both be RDA riders.
Sandra Edwards will be the Dressage Judge this year.
Please find amended table of Dressage classes for the Regionals attached-
The led dressage will be a qualifying class this year (not a non qualifying class as previously stated on the form)
Also, National RDA now sends out qualifying packs per group, so it would be great if each group can nominate a designated person to liase with Region on the day of the qualifiers and after entries have been put in.  We’ll discuss this more at the AGM in March.
many thanks, any other queries regarding the classes available at Regionals then please do get in touch,
best wishes,
