CONGRATULATIONS to Coleraine RDA for being first past the post in the race to get started again after the Winter Lockdown. Their independent riders were delighted to be able to get back onto their horses once this was permitted in April and, since April 23, they have been able to use their indoor arena as well as the outdoor, due to the dispensation for Equine Assisted Activities granted by the Executive.
This is much safer for everyone involved and will allow them to start practising for the Virtual Regional Qualifier in the summer. They also welcomed back the first school group from North Coast College this week… another first.
Newtownards Group have also restarted with some adult riders last week and everyone was delighted to return to Birr House after so long, volunteers and riders alike.
Hopefully, other groups will be following suit when they are ready and able to deliver sessions without putting anyone involved at risk of catching the virus.
