Hi Ladies and Gents,

Well we've been busy little bee's since our last update!

Where to start........ we performed our last show of the season on the 3rd of December near Forfar to raise money for Mountains Animal Sanctuary. We raised approx £900 for this great cause and thanks so much to everyone that came along to make it such a success!!!
 It was our first indoor performance and a lovely RDA arena so we where very exciting. Back stage the horse where provided with wonderful stables on which each door had a name of the RDA horse it belonged too. The younger members of the team thought it was hilarious to change our horses names to their stable names. So Rocky was BANJO, Brego was RICKY (I had to admit he does look like a Ricky!) and poor poor Shamus was called ERIN all day. They had some neighbours arrive, donkeys from the animal sanctuary which Brego was not best pleased with! You would think that a horse that can gallop with someone standing up, hanging off the side, sword fighting, jousting or can even jump through fire would NOT be scared of donkeys? But no horse can be perfect!! The show went well and we gave a small demo on how to train a stunt horse which the crowd found educational.

 We had a fabulous Christmas party this past Saturday involving everyone having a go at all the different discipline's we offer. After lots of time try out new stunts we had party food, games and also decorated our own gingerbread horse and rider. To top it all off they went home with Christmas presents from the horses and our very own Riders of the Storm rosettes!

 We are now training hard for the upcoming season and boy do we have some tricks for you!! As well as our current Scottish and Circus themed show we have a new MEDIEVAL show for 2012, so make sure you come see it!!
