RDA Horse of the Year 2018

Congratulations to ‘Lambrusco’, Helen Burt & Di Redfern of South Bucks RDA

Every RDA Group has different equine needs, from sedate ponies to weight carrying cobs to athletic competition horses. We are trying to move away from the stereotypical ‘ideal RDA horse or pony’ and help people to realise that whilst groups needs differ depending on their participants, all RDA horses and ponies need to be fit, healthy, sound, athletic and able to adapt to the lifestyle at an RDA group.

Lambrusco is a great example of an RDA horse. An athletic all rounder who is good for those who are looking for a therapy walk session & also fantastic for those who are looking for a full dressage lesson.
