    Default RDA going for a record.........

    Riding for the Disabled Association organises world's biggest riding lesson

    The Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) hopes to unite riders around the globe this autumn for the world's biggest riding lesson.


    On 30 September, disabled and able-bodied riders in the UK and abroad will complete a simple routine devised by the RDA as part of its 40th anniversary celebrations.

    Event chairman Doug Smith said: "A global lesson with the same routine on the same day has never been done before, so we will set a world record."

    The RDA hopes at least 5,000 riders will take part and riding schools in the UK, US, Portugal, Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong have already signed up.

    "Anyone who rides anywhere in the world can join in," added Mr Smith. "We want riders to unite — once we're on a horse we're all the same. Anyone who rides could need the RDA at some point."

    The first lesson of the day will be launched by the Princess Royal at Chigwell Riding Trust for Special Needs, Essex — the first purpose-built riding centre for disabled people in the world.

    This sounds neat. Unfortunately, the rda.org site appears to be down right now

    And here I thought this was going to be about the remarkable survival time of a cow with a right displaced abomasum...(RDA)
