Our young riders were delighted when a Royal visitor dropped in to meet them in July 2017. Princess Anne, President of the RDA, paid us a visit to commemorate our 50th birthday.
The Princess Royal arrived by helicopter, landing in a field at Oaklands Riding School, Exeter. She watched a display by our riders, helped by about 20 volunteers. Afterwards she presented them all with commemorative rosettes to mark the occasion, cut an anniversary cake and unveiled a commemorative plaque saying:
“It is a rare treat for me to be able to celebrate 50 years as an RDA group because this is one of the oldest groups in the country.”
