Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA), in partnership the British Equestrian Federation’s (BEF) participation initiative has launched Accessibility Mark to encourage more people into the world of horse riding and its therapeutic benefits.
Each accredited centre has been through an assessment and training day with experienced RDA Coaches to ensure they are a suitable and safe venue meeting the required standards. The centres are continually supported by RDA to ensure each rider progresses through the rider pathway to achieve their maximum potential.
Following an initial pilot project, 25 centres from around the country have already gained the Accessibility Mark stamp of approval and now the scheme has been widened to allow many more centres to take part. By applying for Accessibility Mark, the centre will be able to gain training and advice from RDA (in return for a commercial fee) and once RDA are satisfied that the standards are met, the centre will be awarded their endorsement and will become a centre with Accessibility Mark. We therefore can consider the centre to be ‘Accessible’ to people with disabilities.
If you are a centre interested in becoming Accessibility Marked then please look take a look at the Information & Support Pack on the right hand side which contains lots of information about the project including Centre requirements.
If you would like to take part or for more information please download the Initial Interest Form on the right hand side of this page, complete and return to firstname.lastname@example.org or post to the address shown at the bottom of the form. The RDA Accessibility Co-ordinator will then be in touch to take you through the next stages of the process.
If you have any questions or queries, please contact National Office at email@example.com or 01926 492915.
