Message from Kate Fredou - Ride Organiser:

"The team behind Bradbourne RDA are sad to announce that the 2020 Knole ride will not be going ahead.

With all the challenges that this year has brought, in consultation with our organising committee and the Trustees of Bradbourne RDA it has been decided that it would not be safe, practical or morally right to hold a gathering of over 100 horses, participants and the volunteers it takes to run this event.

The Knole ride is one of the highlights of Bradbourne RDA’s yearly calendar and I know from feedback from the riders a ‘must do’ event and we hope to continue this in 2021".

All riding and carriage driving operations at Bradbourne RDA Group are suspended on the advice of RDA UK following the Government announcements on 16/03/2020 relating to measures to curb the spread of Coronavirus.

Recent research has shown that volunteering with RDA has huge mental and physical benefits for volunteers as well as participants.

Our Aim

The objective of the Riding for the Disabled Association is to give the opportunity of riding or driving to any disabled person who might benefit in their general health and well being. Working across the spectrum of disabilities, age range, social status and urban and rural environments, our focus is to help each individual to derive a direct therapeutic benefit and to achieve their personal goal. 

At our base at Bradbourne Riding and Training Centre in Sevenoaks, Kent we have:

 Acres of fields and woodland
 Indoor school 
 About 14 horses and ponies of various shapes and sizes
-  Over 100 volunteers including 15 coaches

We have over 200 registered riders and carriage drivers of whom more than 120 ride or drive each week.

All of our ponies are suitable age and temperament and have been carefully selected for RDA work. 

All of which enables us to offer a wide range of activities associated with horses and ponies, including:

-  Riding sessions

 Carriage driving sessions

-  Summer camps
