Sunday 26th April 2020
A huge thank you to everyone who took part or supported us in our 2.6 Challenge, some photos from the walks can be seen on our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/2345396355789229/
So far we have raised the fantastic sum of £845. All of the money raised will go towards the care and upkeep of our 13 wonderful ponies.

Many thanks again for your continued support
Normally at this time of year we’d be busy with our weekly RDA sessions, preparing for the Regional Competition and looking forward to travelling to Hartpury for the National Championships with some of our riders, however this year, we are uncertain about what lies ahead during the coming months.
Our ponies are all turned out in the field enjoying the sun and a well-earned break. They continue to be well cared for and are checked twice a day. Even though they aren’t being used in RDA sessions they still require feed, hay, farrier visits and vet checks.
With this in mind, Morpeth RDA has signed up to the 2.6 Challenge which has been set up to help raise money for charities. More information can be found at www.twopointsixchallenge.co.uk
On Sunday 26th April, starting at 2.26 pm, the trustees will take part in the 2.6 Challenge. We’re each going to walk (or jog!) 2.6 miles in our gardens or as part of our permitted daily exercise (following current Government guidelines).
We’d like to invite you to help fundraise for our ponies by taking part in this virtual volunteer session. You can join us in our 2.6 challenge or make up your own challenge. Find out more information or donate using the following links

Our ponies enrich the lives of so many riders, so please, any help that you may be able to give will be greatly appreciated and Morpeth RDA ponies will still be here when we come out of COVID-19 and will be able to continue their essential riding therapy.
The Pegasus Centre is currently closed.
We will keep you updated as and when we have any further details regarding reopening.
Regional Qualifiers & National Championships
In consultation with Regional Chairs and the Championships Lead, RDA National have decided to cancel all Regional Qualifiers and The National Championships. We know this will be disappointing for everyone involved but please understand we have not made this decision lightly.
