The Mount Group RDA

Charity description

The Mount Group RDA logo
We are an enthusiastic group of volunteers dedicated to offering the experience and therapeutic benefit of horse riding to adults and children with special needs.

The Group was formed in 1986 to provide an opportunity for riding to the pupils from the Mount Special Needs School in Melton Mowbray. With twelve volunteers and six borrowed ponies the children started riding on a Thursday afternoon. We are now one of the most active groups in Leicestershire and have fifty riders each week from schools and day centres in Melton Mowbray, Oakham and surrounding areas. Our future plans are to continue the invaluable work with disabled children and adults and to help them achieve their potential, be it an enjoyable experience for them once a week, a therapeutic session or training for a Special Olympic or Para competition. We will do our very best to help them achieve their dreams.
