Simon Wylie, who has Silver Russell Syndrome and Autism has been a member of Laurel View Equestrian Centre’s RDA group for many years. His 2018 goal is to represent Northern Ireland at the Riding for the Disabled National Championships in July at Hartpury College in England alongside Ollie Davison, who has spina bifida and Holly Hanvey, who has high functioning autism and learning difficulties.Simon has previously represented Northern Ireland in 2016 at the RDA Championships as the first competitor from Northern Ireland to compete in the Show Jumping competitions. Unfortunately, he could not compete in the 2017 event due to injuries sustained from a fall during his work at Laurel View Equestrian Centre.
Charles Hurst Renault Newtownabbey supported a RDA fundraiser event at Laurel View Equestrian Centre which sustained fund raising for the 2018 trip.
The day was an overwhelming success to which £2600 was raised!
We want to wish Simon, Ollie and Holly the best of luck.
