National Championships



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!

Can you help? – To enable this event to run we rely on approximately 200 volunteers, if you would like to find out more please click here

We are delighted to once again have Event Mobility on site throughout the event.  If you would like to hire an electric scooter or manual wheelchair then please contact Event Mobility directly.
