Vote for us to be Sainsbury’s Local Charity of the Year

June 14, 2017 at 4:53 pm

We are delighted to report that we have once again been chosen for the shortlist of three charities which shoppers at Sainsbury’s East Grinstead branch can vote for to be the Branch’s Local Charity of the Year.  Two years ago we were voted in, thanks to the many supporters who voted for us, and the total raised, including a donation from Sainsbury’s plastic bag fund, was a fantastic £8,210.

So once again we are asking you to support us by voting for us, either in store each time you shop, or online at www.sainsburyslocalcharity.co.uk. Voting opened on Monday, so we are already a couple of days behind, and closes on 25th June.  The winner will be announced between 2nd-9th July.

Please get shopping and get voting!

 

Success for our riders at the Regional Challenge

June 10, 2017 at 3:58 pm

On Tuesday 6th June, as the rain poured and the wind blew, four of our six entries qualified for the National Champoinships being held at Hartpury  from 14th to the 16th July.

Amy and Leroy both rode Rosie and Kyle and Jasmine both rode Liquorice, and will now compete in the Countryside Challenge at the Nationals.

The RDA Countryside Challenge is a development of the skills acquired in RDA sessions. the course being focused upon school movements, both challenging and stimulating the rider, but with the focus being on “fun”. During the course, riders have the opportunity to put their skills to the test through challenging tasks, going through a farm gate into the farmyard encountering sheep and hens! Steering, balance and confidence are all put to the test.

We wish all our riders the best of luck.
