Charity description

Riding for the Disabled Glasgow Group logo
Every year,  RDA Glasgow Group provides equine therapy to around 400 children and adults with disabilities from across the Greater Glasgow area. We provide 36 hours of riding sessions per week and rely on the help of over 100 volunteers to deliver our service.

Balancing on a horse works thousands of muscles, and the horse’s movement mimics a walking pattern in the muscles of the rider, which provides a highly effective form of physiotherapy. It also offers psychological benefits. This combination of physical and psychological benefits makes equine therapy appropriate for a very wide range of disabilities, from autism and Asperger’s to cerebral palsy, visual or hearing impairments to learning disabilities.

In supporting RDA Glasgow Group you are helping us to continue to fund and support the lessons we provide. Thank you!
