Edinburgh & Borders Region Riding for the Disabled

Charity description

Edinburgh & Borders Region Riding for the Disabled logo
Edinburgh and Borders Region RDA provides equestrian therapy, challenges and fun to riders of all ages with varying disabilities. Groups spanning the South of Scotland, Edinburgh and Fife enable participants to experience horse activities including carriage driving, vaulting and riding whilst learning new skills or entering competitions.

There are 17 groups within the region which stretches from Stranraer in the South West to St Andrews in Fife supporting over 1000 participants. This can bring a new dimension to necessarily restricted lives, encourage independence and does much to improve a wide range of medical conditions.  We have the commitment of more than 900 volunteers who regularly and cheerfully give up their free time.  Our coaches work closely with physiotherapists and other health professionals to encourage every individual to aim for attainable goals – some modest, others far more ambitious.  Whatever they are, we support them. 

Donations are so important because along with fund-raising, they help us to provide opportunities for participants, training for volunteers and ensure the welfare of the horses and ponies.  We are eligible for Gift Aid.
