Wooden Spoon is the children’s charity of rugby. We fund life-changing projects that support children and young people with disabilities or living in disadvantage. Since 1983, we’ve funded more than 1,000 projects, across the UK and Ireland, totalling over £28 million.
In 2018 we were awarded a Wooden Spoon grant to purchase a weight carrying horse for use in RDA. It took us well over a year to find the right horse for our group! We found Ruaridh in December 2019 through vaulting contacts leading to a long journey up to Berwickshire but it he was worth it. He is now used for riding and vaulting. He came 10th over all and 2nd in his class in the Virtual Royal Windsor Horse Show RDA Dressage Competition an amazing achievement in his first competition.
