Exploring the Power of Therapy and Competition
RDA (UK) is proud to be hosting an International Conference in July 2017 to enable delegates from around the world to listen, discuss and watch how it is possible to empower disabled riders, drivers and vaulters to reach their full potential.
Our speakers will share their enthusiasm and expertise through lectures, discussions and practical demonstrations at the internationally acclaimed Equine Centre, Hartpury College (www.hartpury.ac.uk).
Delegates will enjoy a full daily programme of speakers and demonstrations and also have time to network and meet new friends during the evening and enjoy the College’s facilities including a Gala Dinner with guest speaker on the last evening. The cost also includes all accommodation (in student en-suite rooms) for 3 nights. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus mid-morning/afternoon drinks are included and there is a café and bar.
