About the RDA National Championships
The RDA National Championships is RDA’s flagship event, bringing together hundreds of competitors of all abilities in events including Carriage Driving, Countryside Challenge, Dressage, Showjumping, Vaulting and Showing.
The Championships has grown year on year and is now bigger than the Paralympics and Para World Championships combined. In previous years it has proved a springboard for the Paralympics, with many of the current Team GB having competed at The Championships.
The RDA National Championships is held at Hartpury College in Gloucester. Riders who compete at the Championships will have first qualified at a Regional Qualifying Competition in one of our 18 Regions. Riders from all over the country compete at the Championships and come away with a sense of achievement, great confidence, new friends – not to mention the odd rosette!
Hays Travel of Morpeth are holding a coach trip to Edinburgh on Sunday 1st September to benefit Morpeth RDA.
We had a really lovely day for the Easter Competition and it was a great dress rehearsal for the RDA Regional Competition on 16 May 2019. Well done to everyone who took part and very many thanks to all the staff and volunteers who worked so hard to make the whole event such a success with particular thanks to Loansdean
Co-op who supplied the Easter Eggs for the prizes.
