George has a Mane Event!

Hello, do you all recognise me?

It's George of course!

I am looking very smart as Emily hogged my mane and clipped my feathers for our RDA Regional Competition at the centre in May.

My stablemates and their riders had a brilliant day.

Lloyd rode Dominic in RDA dressage...

and Kaitlin rode Rusty in the RDA Showjumping class.

Connor steered Gilly around the Countryside Challenge course.

Chloe rode Midnight in dressage...

and qualified for the RDA National Championships in July.

Well done to all our brilliant riders!

We held our Open Day at the centre on 2nd June.

Humphrey decided he would be a 'Super Horse' in a musical ride with Chloe...

and Councillor Valerie Tyler clearly thought that he was indeed SUPER!

Para rider Gayle Bloomfield rode her horse Lucca in a dressage demonstration...

and RDA Coach Laura set up a small Countryside Challange course to allow visitors to watch our riders going around the different obstacles.

Visually impaired rider, Daniel, rode Midnight.

Daniel posted a letter...

steered around cones...

and opened a gate. Daniel was delighted to receive a rosette from Councillor Sue Davey...

and he is very excited to be going to the RDA National Championships in July!

Open day ended with our dedicated volunteers receiving certificates for the many years they have been volunteering at the Pegasus Centre.

And our Lead RDA Coach, Sam Orde, received a certificate for 20 years of volunteering!

I hope to be a RDA horse for a lot of years to come...

perhaps not 20 though!!
