A bit about me:
Hi, I’m Donna and I’ve been a committee member since 2017. I have 4 horses at home varying from my Homebred yearling to my 21yo mare (his Mum). Some of you may know me via my Clydesdale x TB gelding Diego, who I’ve owned and produced from 6 months old. Our main focus was Eventing until an injury stopped us in our tracks and he’s now off being a Police Horse down in Glasgow where I’m extremely proud to follow his new career.
I recently lost my old mare (pic) unexpectedly though fortunately I still have her boy Enzo who will be 3 this year. My focus is now on Lucas, who will be 5 this year, and I added another horse to the family called Joey, also a young horse. I plan on getting them both out to BE this season, all being well. I also have my daughters pony, Scarlett (AKA The Red Devil).
Enough about my bunch, what do I like about Ythan Riding Club? Well, for a start it’s local. Secondly it’s very very friendly & thirdly it’s extremely good value for money by offering fantastic local trainers at discounted costs, which in the winter months especially, is very helpful.
My proudest Ythan moment: Surviving YRC Camp at Burgie with Suzie. The camp was so much fun as well as proving me with invaluable training and confidence to then allow me to take her out to more BE competitions.
