About Hampshire & Surrey Borders Riding for The Disabled Association

Hampshire & Surrey Borders RDA are a self supporting local charity that works with disabled children in north Hampshire and the Surrey borders. They provide over 1000 therapeutic pony rides per year completely free of charge to enable the physical, mental and emotional development of local children. Currently we are based at the Larkspur Equestrian in Ewshot. We work with two schools, on Tuesday and Thursday mornings in term time only, and in addition we have a third ride on each morning to which parents bring their children out of school to attend. There is a waiting list for those rides. Over the course of a year we provide about 1000 lessons, to children aged 4 - 9 years old, with physical or learning disabilities and varied social or mental ability.

Horse riding provides therapy and enjoyment to people with special needs, and valuable lessons in balance, observation and communication skills are learned. Wheelchair users can experience a sense of independence and freedom and riders grow in confidence through interaction with horses and ponies.

Hants and Surrey Borders RDA are run entirely by a group of over 50 volunteers and are totally self-funded.
