Accessibility Mark



Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA), in partnership with 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.

Over 40 centres have gained the Accessibility Mark stamp of approval. 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.

You can use our Group Finder to find details of Accessibility Mark Centres in your area.

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.
