'The Big Ride' a Great Success!

On Saturday 26th August a wonderful day was enjoyed by all at Shiresmill as we welcomed Sam Orde, Chairman of RDA national, on this leg of 'The Big Ride', a series of events nationwide to raise funds for a major new RDA centre.

Even the sun came out to welcome Sam and all our riders and volunteers to the Centre.  The day involved rides and a scavenger hunt round our beautiful Sensory Park, a Barbeque and strawberries and cream.   It was an incredibly  rewarding and enjoyable day for all, and it was lovely to see so many people enjoying the Sensory Park.
We would like to say a huge thank you to all our amazing volunteers who helped before, during and after the event and contributed to making it such a success!

Special thanks also to Ravelrig Group RDA for joining us at Shiresmill and working with us to make such a fantastic team on the day.  There were smiles all round and each of the riders who participated received a certificate and a rosette from Sam and each left a stone on the cairn to mark the occasion.

And lastly thanks to the wonderful, patient horses who did their job brilliantly but were very glad to get back to the field!  Ravelrig's horse and ponies behaved impeccably!
