Here is our announcement from Matt Dalley, North Midlands Participant Rep and Emma Wells, RDA National Participant Committee Member:

Get involved with your RDA Region!!


North Midlands RDA has had to postpone our participants forum until the early autumn. Don't worry though - we're planning a really good event for all our riders, drivers, vaulters, volunteers …. everyone involved in any way in North Midlands RDA. There'll be more details available about this in plenty of time for everyone to get this in their diaries!

In the meantime we want to make the most of the opportunities we have coming up soon when we'll be getting together as a region at the Countryside Challenge and Dressage Qualifiers. We'd like to use these events to show what a great region we have and what fantastic opportunities there are within North Midlands RDA. 

You can help us to do this by sending us the following:

- Can every RDA group in the Region produce a short write up about what their group does. This can include details about the opportunities you offer, the horses and ponies you have, your favourite activities, any interesting stories - what are the best things about your group you'd like everyone else to know about? Any photos would be really good too.

- Are there any riders / drivers/ vaulters out there with a great story to tell? We'd love to know about what you do with RDA - your best moments, favourite memories, why you enjoy being a part of your group.  Stories, drawings, pictures - all would be really welcomed.

- Are you a rider or driver that also volunteers within your group? Your story could be an inspiration to others to get more involved with their RDA groups. Any stories and photos could really help with this.


If you can help with any of these things we'd love to hear from you. All stories and photos must be suitable for general display at RDA events and on RDA social media.

You can send your stories and photos in on paper or electronically- whichever is easiest for you.


We need to hear from you by the end of April so get pen to paper, dig out those favourite photos and get back to us as soon as possible!


Please send them to
