Cantering to 50!

Perry Riding for the Disabled (RDA) near Much Wenlock, celebrated its golden anniversary, as it was officially formed in October 1969. In October, the group hosted a vaulting competition at their Cavalier Centre site, featuring the Centre’s winning team from the recent RDA National Championships, with a presentation by Shrewsbury Horticultural Society.

Perry RDA was established in 1995, originally running from Jane Barker’s cottage near Shrewsbury. The group moved to its new home, the Cavalier Centre near Much Wenlock, in April this year. Following a grand opening by HRH the Princess Royal, the charity has been growing its sessions of therapeutic riding, driving and vaulting for people with a range of disabilities and needs.

Jane Barker, founder and trustee said, “The Riding for the Disabled Association is an inspirational organisation. We sincerely hope this centre will grow and flourish over the years to come and who knows, perhaps the Cavalier Centre will celebrate their 50th anniversary alongside the 100th celebrations for RDA National.”
