New coaches join riding for the disabled group

New coach Melanie Lawson.

Four new coaches have joined the roster at Richmond & Catterick Group Riding for the Disabled.

Melanie Lawson, Alison Nicholson, Rebecca Gillings and Isabel Thompson started as RDA volunteers but were keen to do more and during the past year gained their RDA Group Coach certificates.

One of the four current coaches, Sheri Wild said: “We’re delighted that Mel, Alison, Bex and Izzy will be giving up their time to bring their new and exciting ideas to the Group’s disabled riders.

“We welcome them to our volunteer coaching team.”

Disabled children and adults ride on Wednesday mornings and Saturday afternoons at Catterick Garrison Saddle Club.
