DRESSAGE TEAM OVERCOME CHALLENGES
 
 
Sam Gladstone and her horse are true survivors. 
 
Both of them have had extraordinary challenges to meet, but thanks to the support of the NHS and some fantastic veterinary care, they are now doing what they like doing best – competing in dressage competitions. 
 
Earlier this month, the indomitable pair were back together competing at the RDA Unicorn Centre’s British Dressage competition.  The Unicorn Centre, a registered charity based in Hemlington, Middlesbrough, has been running these competitions for several years now, to raise its profile and funds.  It’s the only venue in the region delivering this competition, and is well supported.

PRESS RELEASE

THE END OF AN ERA FOR LEARNERS AT THE UNICORN CENTRE

July saw the end of 23 years of the Riding for the Disabled Association’s Unicorn Centre educating young people in City and Guilds Diplomas in Work-Based Horse Care. They had been run in partnership with Middlesbrough College at the Centre in Hemlington, Middlesbrough since it first opened in 1998.

Sadly, funding from the Department for Education has stopped, meaning that the Centre is unable to continue these work-based courses, delivered to over 300 young people since 1998. The courses gave the learners the opportunities to develop skills in horse care and riding as well as providing valuable support to disabled riders at the Centre.
