Aberdeen Riding Club (ARC) was nominated and subsequently shortlisted for the Horse and Hound, HorseDialog sponsored Club of the Year award. ARC was nominated in recognition of its ethos to make riding accessible, the work it has done with therapy riding and its success training three riders who were selected for the Under 18 (100) Scottish eventing team.
The awards were held at Cheltenham racecourse and it was a brilliant evening, made even better by ARC winning their category.
ARC is a BHS approved riding school and career training centre and is hosting its first BHS assessments in early 2019. ARC manager Sally McCarthy presented at a BHS Scotland business mentoring day in 2018 and is also happy to provide any advice or assistance for any other centres who are already BHS approved or are hoping to become BHS approved.
