The RDA National Championships had over 450 competitors, including riders from all of the charity’s 18 regions across the UK. The flagship event held at Hartpury College, is now bigger than the Paralympics and Para World Championships combined with Paralympic stars and celebrities in attendance.

Sian Floyd on Murphy II came 4th in the Grade III and

Jamie Gargett on Geisha II came 7th in the Grade III

Unfortunately Daisy Appleton fell off her pony and was disqualified.

Tracy Green and Lorraine Dobson also competed in the Regional Countryside Challenge Team and were 2nd overall – a great result!

In the Countryside Challenge four riders from the Centre took part: Lorraine Dobson coming 3rd, Tracy Green (pictured) and Grace Turner coming fourth in their sections and Kate Telford 9th.

The team’s fantastic victory followed months of training and success in the regional qualifiers and continues the high standard Unicorn Centre is now achieving at national level. 

The riders were accompanied to Hartpury by their families and friends, five horses, three instructors and a team of volunteers.  Yard Manager Heidi Hutchinson said, “All the riders worked so hard and performed way above our expectations.  We are so grateful to everyone who contributed to their success, particularly dressage clinic coaches Kay Brandon and Felicity Evens who spent many hours coaching the dressage team.”

She continued, “The team has proved that they can consistently achieve good results and they are a credit to the Unicorn Centre. We hope that they will benefit enormously from this and that some will go on to perform at international level one day.”
