Oaklands College Riding High

22 July 2012

On Sunday 15 July Oaklands College Riding for the Disabled (RDA) team competed at the National Championships held at Hartpury College, Gloucestershire.

This year the RDA team included three year 1 Landmark students and out of 200 competitors the College’s team were triumphant in over 10 events. 

Kristian Bell, Entry Level student, came 2nd, 3rd and 4th in the events he competed in and his father was so proud and amazed at Kristians achievements and the event as a whole.

Sarah Moreland, Oaklands RDA Group Organiser, commented: “Thank you again to all those that continue to support our RDA Group and congratulations to our successful riders, many achieving their 'personal bests'. Without the hard work and support of all involved this wouldn't happen, my appreciation goes out to you all.”
