Welcome Chunky & Melvin!

Why we need your help

Meet Chunky & Melvin the newest members of the Gaddesden RDA team and follow their journey  over the next few months as they settle in, meet their new stable mates and undergo training to be RDA ready.

Chunky or to use his passport name ‘Tranmire Gabriel Oak’, is a 14.2hh chestnut Cob with a flaxen mane and tail.

Melvin is 15hh piebald Cob and has beautiful long hair and feathers.  

Their diaries look very busy over the next couple of weeks. They will be seeing the dentist, physio, farrier and saddle fitter as we prepare them for riding. 
We will then kit them out with their bridles, saddles, rugs, headcollars etc..

We are asking for help to support Chunky and Melvin as they begin their RDA journey . Their initial assessments will cost in the region of £900 plus the costs of their saddles and bridles and their ongoing care over the summer.

As everyone knows the last 18 months has been a challenging time and Covid has significantly impacted our rider income and restricted our fundraising events. All donations would be very gratefully received

Thank you for your ongoing support ????

To help out all the horses/ponies at RDA Gaddesden Place this summer - in memory of Auntie Freda who passed away recently. She wasn't one for lots of flowers - am sure she'd much prefer the money to go to a cause where lots of people can benefit!
