Fundraising / Donate

Over the years fundraising has been key to the successful continuation of this group. Through our efforts and from the receipt of numerous donations and legacies, for which the group is eternally grateful, we have been able to provide continuous riding for our students.

There is a considerable ongoing financial commitment including hire of ponies, hire of riding school, providing specialist equipment, insurance, training, competition fees and travel.

Generous supporters have enabled the group to continually provide seven group riding sessions per week, as well as the purchase of essential equipment such as the fully automated lift for assistance in mounting the ponies as pictured.

In addition we have been able to take groups of Manx riders to Clywd Special Riding Centre, pictured above. This has proved particularly beneficial to the riders in their confidence riding, and also developing their independence.

RDA is an inclusive and diverse organisation. We welcome clients with physical and learning disabilities and autism, and there are no age restrictions. Through our network of member groups, RDA is at work in every corner of the UK, in our cities and remote rural areas, bringing the therapy, achievement and fun of horses to as many people as we can.

We are a charity, and we can only carry out our life-changing activities thanks to the generosity of our donors, the dedication of our volunteers and the good nature of our fantastic horses. We are very grateful to Rose Crellin and her team at the Guilcagh stables, for accommodating our riding sessions, and for the loan of her ponies.
