FUN DAY WITH WANTAGE 2013
We had an absolutely fantastic day on Tuesday 17th September when the Wantage Group of the RDA came over to join us for a Fun Day!
It gave us an ideal opportunity to try out the new ‘Countryside Challenge Course’ which was built by Alan, just in time! All the riders managed to go round the course at least once and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves despite the rain towards the end of the morning.
The course comprises of a series of obstacles, which the riders have to negotiate in a specified order. The course has been designed by the National RDA team and will be used all over the country as a competition for those riders unable to compete in dressage.
Everyone really enjoyed tackling the obstacles, such as posting a letter, picking apples and collecting eggs and the helpers seemed to have as much fun as the riders!
Games were also played in the indoor school and there was a treasure hunt around the farm to keep everyone busy and entertained all morning.
After an exhausting morning everyone tucked into a packed lunch and the Lambourn team were treated to a wonderful lunch prepared by the Wantage Group. The whole spread was delicious, but in particular the range of cakes was just too tempting and quite a few of us came back for seconds and ……….!!!
Thank you to the Wantage Group.
