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
