Volunteer for riding for the disabled

← Back to search results

We aim to restart RDA in September and need more volunteers, particularly on a Monday morning, but also on Friday mornings. A love of, and experience with horses would be valuable but not essential, and empathy towards disabled people of all ages. Training is given before starting the role. Volunteers may be required to lead our quiet specially selected ponies or walk beside the riders. We are based at Rayne Riding Centre.

What skills do I need?

Experience with horses or disabled people would be an advantage.
