Vaulting Training Weekend

We were joined by 9 vaulters over the weekend and as many coaches for a fun vaulting weekend.

Thanks to everyone who made the weekend such as success.

It was great to be joined by new groups from other regions who are interested in starting vaulting.


A few photos from the weekend.

In Hand Showing Competition

Due to interest from riders, the Region is pleased to announce that this year we will be holding an ‘in hand showing class’ on the same day as our show jumping qualifiers at Radfords equestrian centre, Oswestry, on the 24th May.
 This will be a non Qualifying class, as there is no in hand showing at Hartpury 2019, though national office say they are looking into it for next year perhaps.

Please read the info attached and pass on the information to your participants and groups.

Participants wanting to take part can use RDA horses and ponies for this class, or if their group can’t bring horses to the event then we have a number of N Wales pool horses we can offer, but places will be limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

If participants have their own horses they want to show then they must be assessed by Anne Furey before the showing date, 
The participant entering may be a RDA rider, driver or vaulter.
