Halloween Competition 2019
Everyone had fun at the Morpeth RDA Halloween Competition
Tuesday 22 October 2019
We had an exciting day at Pegasus when we were filmed by ITV for a programme they are compiling about 50 years of RDA. We will be notified in advance when the programme is going to be aired so we can let you all know to watch out for it but in the meantime you might like to have a look at some of the lovely photographs that were taken during the filming.

Pegasus hosts RDA Regional Competition
The RDA NORTH REGION REGIONAL COMPETITION was held at MORPETH RDA, PEGASUS CENTRE, MORPETH on Thursday 16th May 2019.
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.
Morpeth RDA recently hosted an RDA National SJ Training Day.
Our 2 riders (Eleanor on Baz and Mason on his own pony Maeve) were fantastic and the centre looked great.
We had a great three days with an amazing group from Useful Vision who enjoyed riding, pony care and a competition. We were grateful to Marisa from RDA National Office who organised Braille Endeavour Certificates for our riders!

Great write up in the Morpeth Herald this week!
