RDA Badge Day

During the last days of their school holidays Zahra Bennett, Louise Evans, Matti Kent-Nye, Amelia Clemence, Maddie Isaac & Jac Evans attended Clwyd Special Riding Centre in Llanfynydd where they volunteered and worked towards their RDA Badge.

It was 3 long days, arriving at 9am and leaving at 4.30pm but they all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The members were attending the Easter camp, and each morning they were assigned a rider who they’d help prepare for a lesson or hack, with the group also assisting the riders for a tack and turnout competition on the Sunday morning.

The centre staff were very complimentary about all our members and how well they helped out during the 3 days. They all successfully completed the required number of sessions and on Sunday afternoon Liz presented them all with their badge and signed RDA volunteering log.

They are all very proud of their achievement and look forward to helping out again in the school holidays. Well done everyone: you are a credit to your branch for such a worthy cause.
