RDA Tartan scarf

As the cold weather begins to take hold, you might be interested in purchasing an RDA tartan scarf. These beautiful (and warm!) Lochcarron of Scotland scarves were produced during our 50th anniversary and can be bought through the good people at Norvite Farm & Country with all proceeds to RDA. www.norvitefarmandcountry.com/11406/products/rda-50th-anniversary-tartan-lambswool-scarf.aspx . 

Resource for managing horse care

Tess Fordham, Regional Vet for Scotland has produced a useful template form for groups with horses to ensure consistent care and decision-making in an emergency. This might be useful if you have different people coming in on different days to look after them. You can find it here (third form in the list on the right hand side of the page): myrda.org.uk/runningyourgroup/horses-and-rda/

Carriage Driving Facebook Page

With Carriage Driving groups still unable to return to activity, don’t forget there is a Facebook group for helping to keep you in touch with your RDA carriage driving community. In Facebook search for ‘RDA Carriage Driving’ and request to join.
