It’s our Open Day

It’s all go at Ravelrig RDA this week getting everything organised for the annual Summer Open Day.

We have had the help of some wonderful work parties from HSBC and Lloyds and some of our own wonderful volunteers giving their time and energy to make the place and horses look great for Sunday.

Thanks to the weather and Storm Hector we had to take down the marquee that was up in the car park to then re-erect it to prevent it taking off and flying over Balerno.

We are all excited about the day and look forward to meeting you all between 12noon – 4pm

We have lots to keep you entertained from our tasty BBQ, cafe, magician, craft stalls, tombolas, raffle, riding and much more.

Remember we do have limited space for parking, so if it’s easy for you to walk…

 

Annual Health Check

Tess from Dick Vets arrived at Ravelrig yesterday to give each of our horses their annual health check.  Tess had a good look at each of the horses in their stable to begin with, checking their eyes, heart and bones.

After Tess had given them a good look at in the stable, each of them were led out by Barbara and walked up and down the yard.  From doing this Tess was able to have a good look at each of them and how they walked to make sure they were not lame or looked like they were holding themselves differently.

Then, much to Barbara’s delight they each had to trot, so Barbara must have run at least a mile yesterday with all of the horses.

Each of the horses were given a clean bill of health and Tess was really pleased with them.

Thank you Tess!
