RDA Regional Dressage

It was all go this weekend at Ravelrig RDA with the RDA Regional Dressage Competition on Sunday 27th May.

On Saturday there was a hive of activity in the stables with cleaning the horses, tack and trailer and making sure everything was looking their best for the competition.

Thank you to everyone who came to help on the Saturday and Sunday and made the event such a success.

Ravelrig RDA riders did exceptionally well and congratulations need to go to the following.

Keeping Active

Winter has certainly dragged on this year, but we are not letting it get us down at Ravelrig.  We had a visit at the end of March from the Multiple Sclerosis Society, who are running a project called MSS Active Together to help build motivation and confidence for those affected by MS to get more physically active.

There were six riders who joined us, with Thumper and Teemo helping show them the ropes.  Some of them had never ridden before, so it was lovely to see smiles and laughter from everyone involved.

Tracey from the MS Society said “The session could not have been any better, we were very thankful and appreciative of the support received from your marvellous team of volunteers”

We hope to welcome the six to regular lessons here at Ravelrig.

Christmas Gift Ideas

Are you like me and run out of gift ideas or have those family members or friends that are just so difficult to buy for?  You’ve bought them hankies, socks, jumpers and toiletries for the last few years and need a bit of inspiration?

Well, we are here to help and we have the most unique presents to suggest.  All your present buying woes will be taken care of and you will be helping a wonderful charity at the same time.  Is this possible I hear you ask, well yes it is.

Why not ADOPT one of Ravelrig’s wonderful horses?  For just £30 your friend will receive a Welcome Pack, Birthday & Christmas card and a pony ride.  I know it’s really only £30!
