Rachel Malone from Ardee put on a confident display of her horse riding abilities when she participated in the world famous Dublin Horse Show at the RDS in Dublin in front of a large and appreciative crowd.
Rachel was one of 10 riders from the national voluntary organisation, Riding for the Disabled Association Ireland (RDAI) participating at a Trail Ride at the RDS.
Rachel represented the Drumcar RDAI group at the RDS and she has two brothers Gavin and Cian, and twin sisters Sarah and Nicole.
Rachel works in Drumcar and loves meeting new people, and is a big GAA fan because of her brothers.
Manchester United is her favourite football team, and she would love to meet Wayne Rooney.
Rachel has a dog, Darcy who she loves to take for a walk, chatting to those she meets along the way.
According to her instructors at Drumcar, she is a very keen rider and come rain or shine, Rachel has to go riding. Rachel is very well known and popular with everyone around Ardee with many of her friends from the town travelling to the RDS to cheer her on.
