In a year which has seen change for us all, RDA UK has remained committed to supporting our community of 25,000 disabled children, young people and adults, 18,000 volunteers and 62,500 carers and families across the UK. Covid-19 and the subsequent lockdowns have had a severe impact on the RDA. Whilst activity may have stopped, care for its horses and ponies, including feed, hay and vets’ bills, training and development continued.
RDA is dedicated to improving the lives of children and adults with disabilities through spending time with horses. With the support of 18,000 volunteers and qualified coaches, RDA has 500 centres all over the UK, supporting cities and remote rural areas.
Through fun activities like riding and carriage driving, RDA beneficiaries experience the positive impact of their work; with significant improvements in physical and mental wellbeing, verbal and non-verbal communication, relationship building and confidence.
RDA is a charity that is very close to our hearts and we want to be able to support their community of RDA volunteers, disabled riders, families and friends – all whom benefit from spending time with horses.
As long-time supporters of RDA we are asking for your help in making a difference.
