55 Years of RDA

RDA has been enriching lives through horses for over 55 years. From the beginning, our pioneers started to realise the therapeutic benefits of horse riding for people with disabilities and since we have flourished into a nationwide organisation, delivering outstanding coaching and therapy run almost entirely by volunteers.
