Charity details

Riding For The Disabled Association Incorporating Carriage Driving

At RDA, our horses and ponies provide therapy, achievement and enjoyment to people with disabilities all over the UK.

Our network of 500 volunteer groups organise activities such as riding, carriage driving, vaulting, show jumping and Hippotherapy to over 25,000 people each year.

We have been carrying out our life-changing activities for almost 50 years, and take great pride in the exceptional standard of our coaches and volunteers (18,000 in all).

We offer activities for all age groups and, wherever possible, to people with any disability – and you’re just as likely to find an RDA Group in an urban setting as a rural one.

We rely on voluntary help, donations and legacies to deliver our services.
