On Friday our President, HRH The Princess Royal, chaired the 2020 RDA UK AGM and announced a number of award winners. For Edinburgh & Borders Region there were two notable achievements. Many congratulations to:


Lesley Furnell from Shiresmill Riding Therapy who was virtually presented with her President's Award. In 2020, Lesley was one of eight people recognised with the award for her outstanding service to RDA and had a private audience with HRH. Whilst one should never repeat what one discusses - here is a little quote and a picture from Lesley:


'I had such a lovely day today seeing and catching up with others, and also of course meeting HRH, who was her usual down to earth amazing self. Thank you to whoever proposed me, but on behalf of all the wonderful people I work with. Thank you.'


Ettrickbridge & Dryden Group were awarded a Highly Commended in the Brilliant Group Category for their Horsey Homework. To put this into context, the only other group to achieve formal recognition were the winners in this category, Equipower from West & Central: a Scottish one-two! Many congratulations to Equipower.
