Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) is a charity that makes a difference; that champions disabled people and excels as a provider of disability sport. Nationally around 28,000 people with physical and learning difficulties are helped to achieve personal goals, through riding, vaulting and carriage driving each year. Horse riding offers an opportunity for enjoyment, challenge, friendship, laughter, achievement, independence and confidence. Medical professionals recognise that there are also significant therapeutic benefits for the rider. The warmth and three dimensional movement of the horse is transmitted through the rider’s body, gradually making it more relaxed and supple, reducing spasms and improving balance, posture and co-ordination.
