 Hereford County Roundup 2013

RDA in Herefordshire is changing all the time – to good effect! 

A new Group named Ride 2 Achieve has recently been formed north east of Hereford City and is now up and running providing mainly individual & targeted bespoke sessions for Riders with learning or physical issues tailored to individual needs – either on their own or the Group’s equines. They are keen to receive new enquiries – 

Tel: 07817 831 108 and they will help in any way possible to improve the wellbeing of participants by riding both indoors outside. 

I am pleased to report that Kyre Group has a new qualified Group Instructor in the shape of their Group Chairman Janet Lee. Well done to Janet for all her hard work with this Group! This Group is also desperately looking for a driving pony to resurrect their active driving activities – they would be delighted to hear if anyone knows of such a pony to loan or purchase Tel: 0845 2415394. 

Herefordshire Group has been very busy giving nearly 5,000 therapeutic sessions in 2013 both riding & driving as well as hippotherapy sessions. The Group were also well represented at the RDA Championships at Hartpury College in July. Carriage driving sadly had to halt in the autumn due to wear to the carriage but all is mended and the Driving Group are to resume in March 2014 in more suitable weather they hope!! Anyone interested in taking part or helping with this more unusual but fun RDA activity is urged to contact the Centre on 01432 870 831

The Herefordshire group has also undergone much change over the year – both staff and horses. But the Centre will be open for Participants & Volunteers alike, with many new faces both human & equine in January after a well earned Christmas break. Again the Centre welcomes enquiries from both Volunteers and those wishing to ride.

Do telephone the office and you will most likely speak to Rosemary Hoyes who was awarded West Mercia over & above award for her services to RDA by HRH The Princess Royal at The RDA Supra Regional Conference in October!
