The Remount and Veterinary (R&V) cadets Shaik Shaheed, M. Ravindra Naik, P.T. Swetha Sri and P. Sambhavi were part of the fifteen-strong Andhra Pradesh contingent that participated in the RDC this year. The State team was adjudged the second best, while the Tirupati cadets came home with a rich haul of four trophies and fifteen medals, including three gold, two silver and six bronze.
Apart from a trophy for the horse show at the RDC, the cadets bagged three more viz., the ‘D-G’s Runner’s-up trophy’, ‘Sharma trophy for tent pegging’ and the ‘Best cadet girl’s trophy’ (for P.T. Swetha Sri).
