One of our riders, Ryan Dallas, had the chance to have a private riding lesson at Barrow Farm with Simon Lauren.

Simon Lauren won Silver in Individule Dressage and Team GB Gold at the Bejing Olympics 2010.

The horse, Cash,  was donated by one of our volunteers for Ryan to ride. Amazinly Ryan had only ridden her twice before the lesson, so it was a very big learning curve for both him and Cash, who was a little star. Both Ryan and Cash worked so well and really learnt alot in their lesson together, even with the pressure of having lots of spectators sitting in the gallery.

Ryan has come a long way since he joined Sugarloaf RDA  and owes them a great deal for all their help and support to get him so far.
