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!!

Riders of the Storm have had a very busy start to the year; firstly with Drymen show then followed by Perth Racecourse the next weekend and lots of lessons, camps and experience days.
Drymen was our first show of the season so it meant an early rise to get all the horses bathed and looking their very best ready for the long drive to Drymen. As we approached Drymen, the clouds got thicker and darker, threatening to rain-surely Riders of the Storm wouldn’t mind a spot of rain!!
We arrived and got the horses all settled and ready to perform. All tacked up and in our costumes we warmed up the horses. Brego got an extra long warm up as he gets excited at these events with the buzz of the crowd and the different animals from cows and sheep to chickens and rabbits to be seen.
Both performances went well, the horses where superstars and it even stopped raining! Drymen show was a success no rain, 2 great shows but most importantly fun had by all!
Next we where off to Perth racecourse, we warmed up the crowd with our performance in the parade ring before the days racing commenced for the Gold Cup. After our performance we got to go back a watch a couple of the races as the younger members of the team, Amy and Ellie had never been to the races. I even put a bet on and my horse won!!
I’ve put together some video clips of our shows this season so far….
We have also had lots of trick riding & vaulting camps, lessons and experience days and pony fun days to keep us busy, which had been great and there’s lots of stars in the making!
