The Perry Riding for the Disabled Group
The Perry Riding for the Disabled Group has a waiting list for people to join their sessions, and even for those who have been accepted, it cancels over 50% of its sessions every year due to bad weather. Enough is enough and with the full support of the RDA National, they are fundraising to build an indoor arena. The arena will be large enough to do carriage driving inside as well as riding and vaulting. Not only will it mean that they can accommodate more people, with more sessions, but by letting the facility out from time to time as well, there should be an income that will help to sustain it into the future.
The Cavalier Centre
It is planned that the “Cavalier Centre”, as it is to be known, will be based at Bradely Farm, just outside Much Wenlock. It will have an indoor and outdoor carriage driving track, and a 40×80 indoor arena and smaller outdoor arena. Plans are well on the way for the building and there is a target sum of £750,000 to reach within the next year. A team of dedicated individuals are putting together bids for this money, but in order both to assist them with reaching the target, and to assist them with submitting really attractive bids for grant funding, we have come up with a plan to try and raise the first £100,000.
