RDA is committed to providing life-changing experiences for disabled children and adults across the UK. Our network of centres and volunteers are providing opportunities every day of the week. Even so, we can’t meet the demand for our activities. With your help we can change this.

Now we are 50

This year we are celebrating 50 years of delivering therapy achievement and fun through horses. We’ve come a long way since 1969, but how did it all start? Read about our early pioneers and how we grew to become world leaders in disability sport.

Horses are central to everything that happens at RDA: friendship, achievement, therapy and fun. Carefully chosen for their temperament and suitability, there are around 2,500 horses working for us all over the UK.

Meet our newest group

There are almost 500 RDA groups all over the UK, but to meet demand for our activities we always need more. That’s why we are celebrating the wonderful team at Saddleworth RDA, in Greater Manchester. They may be new but they are already helping 22 adults and children to enjoy the freedom of the great outdoors.
