Open Day was a big success with a good time had by all. Thanks to all the volunteers that helped make it so. There were 210 attendees compared to 130 last year, with 44 new members (and a promise of more that didn’t have cash) in addition to 98 renewals on the day, with many already renewed and online renewals continuing. 50 more interest forms had to be copied to supplement the 200 printed and additional beverages were required to cater for a turnout which exceeded expectations.

On 25th June, Riding for the Disabled in Cascais held its second Open Day and was pleased to welcome 30 riders, their families and friends for a morning of fun and games followed by refreshments. Many parents do not often have the opportunity of seeing their children actually sitting on a horse and this was a source of admiration and pride for many. They were also able to chat to RDA volunteers, staff and board members, receive feed back and discuss specific difficulties and also to mingle with other parents, families and friends.
